I'm taking a quilting class at my university, and we have to do a reserach project---I'm doing mine about Gee's Bend. My fiance helped me come up with a design that's kind of like Tetris with a Gee's Bend twist. I started out with a grid where I filled in a 16x24-square rectangle with the different tetris shapes. Then I broke that design into 24 different 4x4 squares (this is shown in the third picture). Then I rotated each block randomly (either 0, 90, 180, or 270 degrees) and will sew them together. This final design is shown in the second picture. The fabrics I plan to use are shown, I plan on getting a solid black to use as the backing and probably the binding/border as well. I also plan on quilting the "original" design into the quilt, using a multi-colored thread on the black backing.... that way there's kind of an "answer" to the "puzzle" on the back. The "puzzle" is to figure out how the different tetris pieces were situated before.
So, what do y'all think of the design? And do you think it at least somewhat vaguely has a Gee's Bend twist to it?
These are the fabrics.
The "original" pattern. I'll sew each of the 24 4x4 blocks before rotating them randomly and sewing them together to get the finished design...
