I'm sharing a few more quilts from our new book One Block Remix - 10 Fresh Quilts from One Traditional Block today. In the previous post I shared with you the quilts Zigged Paths, Diamond Drive, and On the Horizon. All of the quilts in the book are made from one strip pieced block using 2-1/2" strips. Great for pre-cuts!
Flock in Formation is one of the quilts on the cover. This quilt looks like it could be kind of tricky to put together but the pattern actually comes together pretty fast and easy! I love this quilt because the layout is a little different than the usual horizontal or vertical rows.
The quilting on Flock in Formation was done by Kristi Ryan. She did a really amazing job! Having the quilt hang in our booth at Quilt Market was so fun! Everyone stopped to check out the beautiful quilting and stared for a few minutes trying to figure out how the quilt was sewn together. It is definitely a showstopper of a quilt! I used black and white fabrics from my stash along with Kona Cotton Solids in Curry from Robert Kaufman.
Downtown Criss Cross is another quilt in the book also quilted by Kristi Ryan. This clean, simple quilt would be great for all kinds of occasions and fabrics. It would make a great baby quilt, a perfect quilt for both guys and girls heading off to college, or a great quilt for large scale fabrics for your contrasting yardage!
We used the Rise & Shine collection from Camelot Fabrics the quilt above, along with a black solid.
Another cover quilt is Big Sky Big Star. This quilt is made with only solids but would look great with all kinds of fabric! I was able to photograph this quilt in a beautiful landscape...which made it a wonderful photo shoot!
Using solids for this quilt makes it look both modern and vintage. The movement that's created by the big stars make this quilt sparkle!
Uptown Turnaround is the last quilt from One Block Remix I'm sharing today...but there are still three more quilts in the book I'll share in my next post. For Uptown Turnaround we used another collection from Camelot Fabrics. This collection designed by Allise Courter is called Wildflowers. It so springy and cheerful!
I love the secondary pattern in this quilt, it was one of my favorites to make!
There are still a few more quilts to share with you from One Block Remix. Check back in a few days to check them out!
Cheers and happy quilting!
