A fellow guild member is a retired art/quilt teacher and he speaks to quilt guilds and groups about quilting from time to time. He asked if I would create a smallish (about 2' x 3') quilt for him to use with his collection when speaking to guilds. So, firstly, I'm honored! :) He told me to do whatever design I wanted and has given me free reign on the design of it. Below is a pic of the design I came up with, which is basically a 9-patch block with HSTs on 2 corners of each block to create the blocks on point. At first glance, it's a complex looking quilt but is actually quite simple if you look at the 9-patch block pattern -- so that's what I was wanting to get across with this, that you can create intricate looking patterns with simple blocks based on the color placement. The quilt will be about 21.5" x 27.5", and the 9-patch blocks will be 3" square so each individual square will be 1" finished size. What do you think?
