Today's finish is a sampler quilt made from black-white-and-bright BOM blocks. I hosted/taught this BOM last year (September 2015 - August 2016), and made a commitment to the students to stitch it up as soon as I could.
New skills for me:
Wonky/twisted setting for blocks (based on tutorial found at About.com; click ahead to step 3).
Placing blocks in a non-grid pattern, which involved partial seams everywhere.
Curved piecing on some flying geese in the background (learning about/practicing my curves in this year's BOM).
Quick shot of the reverse, a giant B&W print from the stash of amazing art quilter Jonathan Shannon.
Not sure if the fabrics and the setting managed to break this traditionally-pieced sampler out of its stuffy past, but I like to think that 12-inch star blocks can aspire to a modern sensibility.
Thanks for reading about my quilt!
