Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol. 12

 

My block, which is below, is made with the newest collection from BasicGrey for Moda called Mon Ami, along with some grunge. It's a fun, charming collection.

When I was at Quilt Market in May I met Allison Black from BasicGrey. She stopped by my booth after noticing my love of BasicGrey. I had my newest book, One Block Remix at market and three of the quilts in the book and in my booth were made with different BasicGrey collections! I'm always drawn to the beautiful artwork and fresh colors of their fabric.

Our book, One Block Remix, has 10 different quilt patterns all using one block. It was fun to play with one block to see what new shapes and designs are created by moving and shifting the block, along with using different fabrics. I've also done that with previous blocks in Quitmaker's 100 Blocks for the blog tour which you can read about here, here, and here. I can spend hours moving things, or changing colors. Many times the results can be surprising! I've done the same for my latest block. The first layout is a straight forward layout. The block creates a secondary pattern that carries though the quilt.

Add some vertical sashing and it's a whole new pattern.

Now, flip some of the blocks for a new pattern.

Or, turn the blocks on point

I turned the blocks on point and changed the colors to a monochromatic color scheme.

Below the blocks are again on-point but I swapped out the setting triangles and corners with white.

Lots of possibilities with just one block!

Or, as a table topper or small play mat

Or, a few blocks can make a great table runner.

Amazing how one block made with different colors and adding black can change how a quilt will look. Wow, inspirational.
Thanks

Kaye M.

It was fun to see how versatile your block is! It can be made up in so many great designs, but I think my favorite is when it is set on point.

Lisa Marie

Oh, this block is great -- it could really use up some scraps! It made me laugh that you said there have been comments about mayonnaise. I've never before left such a comment, but I did buy some mayonnaise today. Need it for sandwiches when there is leftover Thanksgiving turkey. So now I can say I've left a comment about it!

Lori Smanski

Congratulations, what a fun block. I love the variations that this block has. I especially love the pinks.
