Fell in love, Hunted the mag down....
I too made this with a bit of blue...it is going on my living rm wall
I made this quilt
This was a very interesting quilt to make. I made it with black/white/blue...it turned out to be very striking. I add three borders, first one was blue, second was pinwheel with alternating rectangles and third was plain black....
Block Positioning
Hi gracielu. Each block has two short seams (from sewing the 3 1/2˝ white/black squares to the green 3 1/2˝ middle square), and two long seams (from sewing the 9 1/2˝ black/white strip to the middle square unit). The idea of the pattern is to have some blocks with the long seams horizontal, and to rotate other blocks 90 degrees to have the long seams vertical. This is what gives you the off-center barn raising look of the quilt. Thanks for the question! - Kathy
correction
I meant to say horizontal, sorry.
question about position of blocks
putting the blocks together you say to put the long seams of the squares in opposite directions, so the long seams will be horizational on one block and vertical on the other? It was kind of confusing. The quilt is very interesting
