|Fabric I was given|
|Fabric I used|
A couple of these fabrics are ombres, which means that they shade from light to dark and back to light across the width of the fabric. As you can see in the finished quilt photo, I tried to leverage that gradation in the quilt so that the background values are lighter at the top shading to darker at the bottom.
You may also recognize the design of the quilt as a simpler version of Tetris Hex that I made for one of my nieces. I've finally managed to write the pattern for that one, and you can find it here, along with comments to make this Riley Blake quilt as well.
Isn't it great to start the week writing about something that has been accomplished? Now on to the next.
