Design wall photo op. I sold this quilt on etsy and just wanted to be sure I had photos of it since all were lost when my hard drive crashed last spring. The block is called northwind but it is also called corn and beans, because I chose cool blues I call the quilt Northwind. I used 6" x 18" strips of fabrics from bales that I purchased at quilt guild several years ago, it was a fundraiser through a company called Merryvale, they would buy a complete line of fabrics and quilt guilds could order packages of 6 inch squares or 6" x 18" bales of the collections, there was a new collection each month and the guild got a portion of the cost. I sorted out the blues, purples, greens, pinks and a few greens and yellows from my many bales. I paired them then cut the large triangles and smaller triangles, each pair made 2 blocks with a few HST leftover for the borders, I did have to cut a couple strips just for the borders. To make order out of the chaos I grouped the colors together which created a very pleasing movement of light and dark across the quilt. So I say good bye to this quilt as I ship it to its new home. --Ann-- Check and see what everyone else is doing at Patchwork Times.
