I made a small table topper last month using the Upstairs Hobby Room X's and O's tutorial.It looks lovely on my table. See it here
When I saw the other blocks on the linky, I noticed they were mostly in pink or coral tones. Two days ago I rashly decided to do another project in a different colorway. Once I had decided to do a cot size, I did a little research in nursery trends. Grey always seemed to feature-teamed with pink, blue, yellow or teal.I chose the teal with grey. I realised later they are the Air NewZealand colours, and the colours of my High School uniform, so are a not unfamiliar combination. I chose to to use the same 4 fabrics to see how the blocks play together when repeated.
I found that there were 2 options for the layout. One had the teal as the main colour
The next decision was borders. I knew I wanted borders but my preferred fabrics had insufficient left. I had to go with what I had.
I quilted this with organic irregular straight lines, which I thought suited the modern look of the blocks.
Size- 46 inches square.
I am really happy with how this turned out, and am so pleased I had another go at this block.
I am linking to the Upstairs Hobby Room Linky party.
This is my 5th finished quilt for 2016.
