I thought I would make an attempt at a modern quilt - one that uses colours that are a bit bold and a pattern that references traditional quilts, but used in a modern way. I came up with this block.
I then wanted to only use it twice in a 40 x 40 inch quilt.
I have selected 4 colous of fabric, that I will dye my self - while this pattern is solid colour, it will be dyed using a low water technique that will give the fabric some texture. This I hope will be a very bold (and dark) baby quilt.
This weekend, I will dye the fabric for this quilt and will post the results - the binding and backing will all be the dark purple. I am thinking of calling it something related to an hourglass - maybe The running hourglass, or even Mangled Geese.
