It's time for something completely different. Well... it's all about patching, but for a new quilt!
I found this very inspiring book, Sampler quilts by Lynne Edwards, and I spent a weekend looking at all those beautiful blocks with all the different techniques.
Every block is explained very clearly with nice drawings and pictures of different sample quilts,
here 's a picture of 'grandmothers fan':
I started with to blocks by hand. Since the quilt will be for a teenage-boy, fabrics with flowers, hearts or other girly prints are absolutely forbidden. The colours he has choosen are blue on a yellow background.
The blocks are still in progress, but I like the idea. And it's so much fun to do!
Have a nice day,
