This is the third post featuring quilts from our new book One Block Remix - 10 Fresh Quilts from One Traditional Block. In the previous posts, pt. 1 and pt. 2 I shared some of the quilts in the book, this post i'll share the remaining three quilts.
Party Pants is a fun, quick quilt. Turning the block on point creates this fun pattern that reminded me of party streamers.
Naming quilts can sometimes be tricky. I wanted to have a fun, party name for this pattern but was struggling to decide on something. Party Pants has been one of the funnest pattern names I used. I've gotten lots of fun comments from people about the name!
Strip Flash is another fast quilt from One Block Remix. I love this pattern and can't wait to make more. For the sample in the book I used one jelly roll and contrasting fabric.
I love that you can create the angles and diamond like shapes with just strips and squares!
Flag Flyer is the last quilt to share from the book. I made two different samples for the book and for the booth at Quilt Market.
I wanted to show how different a quilt can look depending on fabric choices. The quilt on the left is made in solids, using just 2 colors and the quilt on the right is made with lots of different colored strips. It was fun to see peoples reaction when they realized both quilts were made from the same pattern. Choosing fabric for you projects is such a fun part of the process and is a great way to show your individual creativity!
Cheers & Happy Quilting!
