QIP – Quilt in Progress

quilts 202, originally uploaded by Compwalla.

This is the “real” version of the practice quilt I made last week.  I made 27 blocks for it but I’m not going to use them all. I make them in sets of nine because of the stack and whack technique that I use to start them and the second set of nine included a fabric that made the whole block look, well, ugly. It just didn’t go. So I made another set of nine and mixed those in and I like it much better.

It’s much brighter and busier than the practice quilt. I knew it would be because this color palatte isn’t monochromatic but I’m ok with that. This line is so bright and fun and summery and that feeling is coming across in this quilt which is just what I wanted.
