Quilts from Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Fall 2015

The latest issue of Quilts from Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks is out and I am proud to say I have a pattern included in the mix.  My design, Carousel Crosswalk combines two different "Irish Chain" style blocks from previous 100 Blocks issues.
 
Dutch Chain (block #1070, by myself) and Sweet Peas (block #698, by Margie Ullery) combine to create a delightful chain pattern that ebbs and flows over the quilt.

It is a change of pace for me to design in dark colors.  I almost always get stuck thinking in terms of white.  I am so happy with how this design came to life with the deep navy background.  I enjoy trying to challenge myself to try new things - even if it is just switching background colors!

Check out the other fabulous patterns in this issue here.

  5. Love the dark background, AnneMarie! And that's a big challenge--not just a "just" change :) Thanks for letting me know about Quilts from Quiltmakers--didn't know about it.

  6. I also get stuck in white background land. I just bought some fabric that is cream with a small print for background fabric today - going crazy. :) Baby steps.

    It looks great! Congrats!
