I followed a recomended link on Facebook to a quilting class on Craftsy.com by Anita Grossman Solomon called Traditional Blocks Made Easy. This workshop is aptly named as she presents completely innovative methods of constructing blocks. My mind was blown and I was immediately off to try out the technique of the first of the five blocks demonstrated.
I selected scraps of Fairy Frost fabric from a previous quilt and set out to create 25 blocks of bright mixed colors. These got arranged in color blocks and bordered with a dark purple with a silver glitter finish.
You can also see that I used a scrappy approach to the binding.
I used the same border fabric for the backing and used scraps to create a strip of flying geese for the back.
Quilting is stitch-in-the-ditch on the diagonal using invisible thread.
This quilt will go the the Passages program at the hospital.
