my creative pursuits with quilts and knits

New Year, New Projects

I do have a long list of UFOs or WIPs, or whatever you like to call them, but I can’t resist the lure of the next new thing.

Bonnie Hunter suggested this block last summer, the Split Nine Patch, as a leader-ender project.  Over Christmas vacation, I organized a scrap basket so that I am ready with my 2.5″ squares and 2-7/8″ squares (to make half square triangles two-at-a-time).imageHere are my first few scrappy blocks.  I can’t decide if yellow should be on the dark or light side!  Those squares are definitely eye-catching, but my theory is that they will blend once they are in a full size quilt.  You may notice a plethora of blue…my favorite color for sure!

Sophie over at Block Lotto decided on bold graphic designs for 2014.  She is even hosting a separate quilt-along with her patterns.  So, I made the grey and white version for the Lotto, and the red and blue for my 2014 QOV sampler.  Check out the details here for the Mod Mod QAL.
