HeartStrings has a new project starting this month and going on through October that uses black centers with brights OR homespuns so what am I doing playing around in EQ?
Sandi posted a link on HeartStrings to this quilt that I absolutely fell in love with and knew I’d have to try and recreate….so I’m going to cheat a bit and work on recreating it with my black and brights. I’ll still try to get a HeartStrings top done with black and homespuns or at the very least some blocks to send in for group quilts but for now, here’s my EQ drawing. I’m not going to try and make this wonky because I intend to use my Accuquilt GO to cut the diamonds and strips.
I was playing a bit with the construction of the diamond blocks which you can see on the wall with this top of Mom’s that I’ve got up while I’m “thinking” about how I’m going to quilt it.
I’m also debating using a solid black versus a print because black solids seem to show so much lint and I want the quilt to be practical because it will be a donation quilt so I’m leaning toward the polka dot in this photo.
