Quilt Sketching
Topic: Quilting

 As I go along day to day I sometimes see a quilt that I would like to recreate. I take a snap of it on my phone.

There are never any details and I don't make any notes.

When I was sketching in my notebook, I pulled out my phone and set to work figuring out the pieces needed and, sometimes, the steps required to make four of these quilts.

I added color with markers when I got home.

This first one is based on a quilt hanging in the library of a community college in Tennessee! I calculated the size it would be if constructed of various sizes of units. I'll decide later which I want it to be.


 I don't know the origin of this block. The focus in this casewas figuring out the steps to construction. I also wrote out all the pieces needed to finish it.


I think I took a photo of my computer screen when I saw a quilt make of this block in different values of gray.

The coloring I used in the sketch is just to show values, not real color.

Again, I listed unit sizes.

I din't add any color to this sketch as it is supposed to me made scrappy. You can faintly see where I darkened the blocks that would have prints or colors and left those that would be white background.


I filed these away for use someday. They may become charity quilts when I catch up with the other 30 I have in various stages.
