  1. 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! πŸ™‚

    • Thanks Teje πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚ Avis x

    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.

  11. Thanks Denby! Nice of you to visit my blog again πŸ™‚ 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……..

    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.

    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 πŸ™‚

    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 πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚

  29. 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 πŸ˜€ 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….

  32. 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 πŸ™‚ My daughter has also been to Russia and seen the beautiful architecture and tiling. I think I really like over the top beautiful πŸ˜€ 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!)

  33. This is awesome! Love the movement created when you split the block on the diagonal.
