…continuous quilt Color Blocked, she asked.
Well, to explain, I first had to learn how to draw on a picture. Obviously, most bloggers know how to do this, but I wasn’t one of them. And although, graphic designer, daughter could have done it in about 2 seconds, she and her fancy programs aren’t here and I don’t have any programs! What I did learn was that on my Mac, in the preview pane, you can annotate, which is how I did this. There are probably better ways, but that’s all I had, or could figure out, anyway…
Starting in the center, I stitched in the ditch across the lime, to the right, down an inch then back and forth until I finished the cube. I marked off one inch lines to follow and used my walking foot. I then traced up, in the ditch the right hand side of that same lime/purple block and continued by filling that block, then when I got to the bottom right hand corner of it (block 2), I stitched over an inch and down an inch, then across the width of the turquoise and worked my way down…….. So there are places were I’ve stitched over a previous line, but only once and not more than an inch at a time.
When I got back to the center I moved on to a second quadrant, and on and on….
Does that help? Does that make sense, at all?
I sure hope so because I don’t think I could draw it again!
Perfect sense! The drawing/pictures helps immensely!
It’s good to know I’m not talking to myself, too!
Oh I’m so glad you answered this! I was going to ask you myself. I suspected this was the case, but confirmation is helpful. Love the quilt–so striking and yet so simple.
There you go, now you know you should speak up and ask! (Talking to myself here, too!)
