FQB: Allison's Quilt

Hi Friends! It's time for another round of the Fierce Quilters Bee.

Last round, I had the serious pleasure of working on Anna's quilt. These are four of the improv strips that I made, which give you a pretty good idea of the palette. The style=total improv awesomeness. (There was other stuff too, but I really enjoyed making these strips, even if it was a crazy wild experiment for me!)

But this round, I'll be working on something a bit more traditional. (And I say a bit because the fabrics are total modern yum.) Think 12" finished blocks with sashing and cornerstones. But AWESOME 12" finished blocks with sashing and cornerstones.

This is the stack of delicious that I will be working with. I KNOW. Total yum fest.

And here are the blocks already made by Allison and Anna.

This lovely is my favorite of the bunch. I pretty much swoon every time I catch sight of it.

I know I've said it before, but I seriously love that everyone has such different fabric palettes and design ideas. I already have a huge list of ideas for Allison that I'm going to have to pare down somehow. (But how??) I'm thinking a mix of traditionally pieced and paper pieced blocks because why not?

And this is my first contribution. Greek Cross for the win! I'm hoping to churn out a ton of blocks this week for this particular quilt, but some of that is going to depend on whether I get some paper piecing templates printed out. And there are a lot of HSTs in my future. Good thing I've gotten over my love-hate relationship with them and we can co-exist and be because they are sooooo wonderful.

Wow. Never EVER thought I'd be saying that about HSTs. What are your quilty plans for this week?


  1. I love your first block!! This quilt is getting more and more awesome :)

  2. Holy cow, Audrey your eye for color astounds and escapes me. I love all your blocks and want to just curl up with the brilliant purple block. Well done!

  3. I'm in love with that purple and black improv strip! Drool, drool, drool. I could see those colors/patterns in a very sassy skirt.


Thanks for leaving me a note! You've made my day!
