    I've been asked a couple of times about my avatar quilt and how it's made. Hope these pictures are what you wanted. It's all made with one simple block. It's in the placement of the colors and blocks that you get the pattern. Mine is made of all silk and the colors of the fabric are vibrant and beautiful.

    Thank you! I don't do brights too often, but I fell in love with these silks and had to make a quilt from them. It hangs in my sewing room and I love it too!

    Just curious, did you plan the color placement first or make the blocks and arrange them after? The quilt is spectacular!!

    I made the blocks first and tried to make a variety so when I put it together I wouldn't have to change too many. I did make extra and did have to change a few. That's how I ended up with the ones I just used to show how it was made.
