I'm making a quilt for Ashley, who picked out a color scheme of green and purple. I had fun dyeing a range of colors. I'm using a pattern by Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr called "Glyphs," which incorporates improvised piecing; I've really been enjoying cutting and piecing this pattern. Here are the first 24 blocks (out of 64 that I'll need for the quilt); I've made each block to finish at 6x8-1/2".
Here's a photo of the pattern, available in Modern Quilts Illustrated, no. 9.
I've changed the size of the block while keeping the proportion of width/length. I plan to use a narrower sashing, and a border the same width as the sashing. I haven't decided yet on the color for the sashing. I'll wait until the blocks are done and then audition fabrics. I'm thinking it might be a light green, or possibly a wide range of colors from the quilt.
