Posted by Oh Sew Tempting on March 25, 2012
I love the movement in this – it looks like the blocks are all squirming around….or a wind is trying to blow them away… Good job on the tutorial too! 🙂
Thank you! Yes, I see what you mean about the movement 🙂
That’s amazing! Looks like an optical illusion!
Thanks, I’ve no idea how to quilt it!
WOW – I’m bookmarking that to keep for when I hava bit more experience
Aw! Thank you Claire 🙂 Your patchwork is great! The only difficult part with this one is pressing the seams the correct way. You can do it!!
Wow! I like it. Dont know what english word to use……in swedish: häftigt 🙂
Thank you very much Gun 🙂
That’s gorgeous! And when I look at it, it seems like the pattern’s moving when it isn’t; I love that effect!
I’m bookmarking this page so I can come back to it for later inspiration. 🙂
Hi Ria, Yes I didn’t realise this as I was putting it together but as you stand back it comes to life 🙂
Very great quilt. Looks like a really interesting technique to put the quilt together and the results are lovely!
It is quite straightforward really 🙂 Thank you!
Wow, love the colors and the quilt. So cool.
Thank you! It went together quite quickly 🙂
Wow that’s wonderful pattern! The quilt looks very alive! x Teje
Thanks Teje 🙂 I’ve seen lots of this type of design. My pink one is similar but I used a totally different technique. I hope you have lots of sunshine today. The birds are singing here 🙂 Avis x
A great way to make plain fabrics look like prints 🙂
Yes, I see what you mean Quirky 🙂 Thanks for visiting again!
Great quilt. I love the way you have put it all together and your tutorial was excellent. It would look great in many different colourways.
Thanks Denby! Nice of you to visit my blog again 🙂 The tutorials do take a while to put together and the photography delays the sewing progress. If someone else finds them useful, then they are worth the effort. I agree about the colourways. I think this design would be really nice in a range of creams, from ivory to butter. Now you’ve got me started……..
Love this!! It’s so wiggly!! Thanks for the tutorial.
You’re very welcome. Thank you for your comments too 🙂
Love it! Its making my eyes wiggle!! I love playing with the strips and choosing how to put them together – thats the best bit.
Yeah, me too! Hey Trish, did you decide not to accept your blog award. No problem if you did of course, I just wondered 🙂
It’s a stunner Avis.Really clear instructions too. They just make the finished result even more impressive.
Thanks Stevie! Well, if I’m not told how something is put together, I’m usually trying to work it out 🙂 I’ve just seen your photos from Portugal….fantastic! If anyone fancies a ride around Europe on a Harley, take a look at Stevie’s blog 🙂
Great looking quilt. What a terrific idea. Might just have to give that a try.
I’d love to see the results! Thank you for visiting again 🙂 Avis x
I love that! Thanks for sharing, it is definitely going onto my project wish list.
I’m pleased you like it 🙂 Don’t forget to show us when you eventually make it.
Thank you very much! It is fun to make up 🙂 Thanks for visiting. I’m off to see what you are up to 🙂
cute, cute!!!! Love the pattern! Thanks for taking pics- I might try this pattern.
Oh Becky, I’ve just taken a peep at your blog! I’m so pleased you found mine. Your blog is wonderful 🙂 I’m pleased you like the quilt!
Fantastic quilt and the instructions are so easy to understand and follow. Love the autumn colours. The quilt really does move as you look at it. I plan to make it in purples. It will be great to be able to keep returning to yours to see what to do next.
If you get stuck, just ask. I’d love to watch your progress. If you send a photo, I’ll post it here. I love purple 🙂
This is my favourite one so far by a mile. I like the different hues, it wouldn’t be the same with just a simple tonal range.
I agree! and it was such fun to make. I think I’ll try it with different colours when I’ve used up some of my other ideas 🙂
Well here I am having a coffee break, having reached the 50 squares. They are all sitting on the table waiting to be turned into a quilt. Thank you for your tutorial above, it has been such a help. I am pleased with the colours now they are sew together in the squares. The next big decision is which colourway to add to which. More coffee needed!!! I have been taking some pictures along the way.
This is fantastic news!! If you email me some photos, I’ll show everyone else. I love your colour choice 🙂 I can’t wait to see it! In fact, you should have your own blog (if you don’t already). Making this quilt could be your very first post 🙂
Thank you for offering to post the pictures. I will send some once it is completed in a couple of days.
No chance of me having a blog. I am just happy to read and learn from yours.
Thank you, I’ll look forward to that. I thought a blog wasn’t for me. Now, I wish I’d started years ago 🙂 Good luck with the finishing touches!
I have some pictures ready, even though the quilt is only half completed. How do I get them to you?
I’ll have your email address somewhere…..I’ll write to you. Thank you so much 🙂
Fabulous work!!! The creativity is simply outstanding and looking forward to look at the upcoming posts… All the best:-)
Thank you so much for visiting my blog Sellappan 😀 I’m pleased you like what you see. Best wishes to you too. Please call back soon!
Wonderful quilt Avis. Full of movement. Impressive!
Thank you 🙂
This is so beautiful! What a great job!
Thank you very much! Sew kind 😀
Love this look, have lots of scraps, also blacks and whites – will have to try this one (thanks sew much) on both – also would make a wonderful valor quilt with red, white and blues. Thanks again.
Red, white and blue would be fabulous. Good luck! One of my other readers followed the tutorial and I put the photos on a later post if you are interested. Thank you for visiting my blog. Enjoy 🙂
Avis have you started selling these yet? I’m gonna put your blog on my FB page some of my lady friends will love this.
Thank you so much!!! I am going to start making quilts to sell from about September onwards. I take it you quite like this one 😀 It would make a great wall hanging in stained glass looking batik cottons and wouldn’t need to be huge to have a wow factor. So many ideas….
So many ideas so little time.
I’m not complaining 😉
Me neither at least it shows my brain is still working well enough to have ideas.
Love this idea- I thought it was going to be one of the jelly roll races!!
And thank you for following our new Bird of Paradise Blog
Hi Susan, Welcome to my blog. The Bird of Paradise is looking gorgeous! I’ll have fun following the progress 🙂 Avis x
This is utterly gorgeous!
Thank you very much Esther!:-) Welcome to my blog. I’ve been really enjoying your posts too 😀 Avis x
This looks really awesome. It reminds me all the tile floors in old Russian buildings. (I think of Russia mainly because my sister and her husband were there a year or so ago and took piles and piles of photos of floors and ceilings. Everything in those buildings is over-the-top beautiful.)
Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a lovely comment 🙂 My daughter has also been to Russia and seen the beautiful architecture and tiling. I think I really like over the top beautiful 😀 Avis x
Yeah, going through their photos we had to laugh at how their design sensibility seemed to be summed up with Add More Gold. If there weren’t enough wallpaper and drapes and paintings and furniture and tiles and mosaics and patterns on the ceiling… they’d just gold plate something. Or maybe everything! (Gorgeous, though!)
If you’ve got it, flaunt it 😉 Have a lovely Easter! Avis x
This is awesome! Love the movement created when you split the block on the diagonal.
And it is so easy to do 😀
Jeepers!!! Incredible….. xxx
I’m pleased you like it 🙂 The finished (quilted) version is in my later post here if you are interested:
Love this idea- all of the dynamic design one could desire without all of the complications! Thanks for sharing!
Thank you. It’s so easy and everything matches up well 🙂 enjoy!
Reblogged this on the green apricot and commented:
Love this idea- can’t wait to do it! Enjoy
