In my previous post I wrote a little about my time at spring Quilt Market and the release of our new book One Block Remix- 10 Fresh Quilts from One Traditional Block. Today I'm going to talk more about the book and look closer at some of the quilts.
First, a little background about this project. It started well over a year ago. I was playing around on my computer with some layouts of a quilt block and the next thing I know, several hours had gone by and I had numerous layouts with that one block. But, all these quilts looked distinctly individual. I loved the idea of one block, but so may different quilts. It was fun playing with that one block! The other thing I LOVED about the block was the fact that is was perfect for pre-cut, 2-1/2" strips! One of my favorite things to buy are pre-cut strips. Don't you love pre-cut strips??
I admired these jelly rolls for awhile before unrolling them. Love this collection. Well, really I love everything from BasicGrey! Three of the quilts in the book are made with three different BasicGrey collections! I'll show you all three in this post...
The first quilt is Zigged Paths...which I made with the lovely Fresh Cut shown above. The two jelly rolls and contrasting yardage in the above picture are all I needed for the twin size shown below.
The next quilt, Diamond Drive packs a graphic punch and creates a secondary woven effect that is pretty cool. For the quilt shown below I used one jelly roll from the BasicGrey collection Persimmon and my contrasting yardage.
This quilt is so fun and easy to put together. It is one of my new favorites! The quilting on Diamond Drive was done by Kristi Ryan and it is amazing! I love, love, love the crosshatch on the contrasting cream fabric. Her work is really, really, awesome!
The third quilt from One Block Remix I want to share for this BasicGrey themed post is On the Horizon. I used PB & J from BasicGrey for this quilt. The navy grunge fabric is sweet! I'm kind of obsessed with navy right now so I think I need to add some more of it to my stash.
Later in the week I'll share with you some more quilts from the book!
Until then, cheers and happy quilting!
