Well, I’m back at this. I took a couple of days off for Christmas, hopefully you got to do the same. Today is Day Eight on the 12 Days of Color Journey I have been on. Today’s block is designed by Jill Finley. Her interview with Pat Sloan is here, and Jill’s block directions are here. I had fun messing with fabric and color placement in the original pattern and took quite a few liberties with “background” and “feature” fabrics. The Jenean Morrison True Colors and Grunge blocks are closest to the look of the original block.
Here is the Kona block done up in—in Smoke and Capri:
Here is the second Jenean Morrison True Colors from Free Spirit Block (I like how this block is “blurry.” I think some blocks should be that way particularly if the whole quilt is the same block. I think it adds mystery to the viewer):
Here is the fourth Jug or Not From Michael Miller Block:
Here is the Grunge From Moda block:
And here are the Aurifil threads of the day (5005 and 2225):
That’s it for today. Go ahead and comment on today’s post about the blocks, the fabrics, the thread, or anything else you want to talk about (the holidays, the return lines, the new year, whatever!) I will be drawing one daily prize winner from each day’s post as well as drawing names from all 12 Days of Color for the Grand Prizes…(which I still haven’t given you pix of, but they will be great, trust me!) I will likely be drawing the winners on New Year’s Day because I think that is when the whole series will be done by. I am working on the rest of Day Nine’s blocks tonight for tomorrow’s post, and then on Saturday for Days 10 through 12 (if I can get through them all!) Until tomorrow….Sweet Dreams and Sweet Sewing!!
