blocker's block

I tried to think of something catchy for the title of this post, but clearly I have failed. So forgive that please.

I have mentioned before how I feel compelled to define what type of quilter I am - no idea why, probably some personality quirk that I like to characterize or compartmentalize because I constantly have 9 thousand ideas jumping in my brain that I desperately want to streamline and narrow down a focus. Anyways. This quest of mine -lol, there is no quest, I just made it dramatic for no reason at all- has finally concluded because I have determined my style.

And my style is NOT BLOCKY.

Ha. Hilarious that I am so content with that realization, because truly, that really is enough to remind myself what is for me, but more importantly, what is NOT for me.

So, if it involves blocks, I am probably going to pass. The exception to this only is big blocks or wonky blocks. But other than that, my favorite quilts are not blocky.

Like this one I just made. I grabbed a fabric and built both the color palette and the fabric selection around the Nani Iro fabric. Additionally, I built the design around the pieces I cut. And I am really happy with how it came out.

That double gauze cotton creates the most glorious crinkle.

This quilt is available in my shop here.

Very pretty! I'm like you - I'm not much of a blocky quilter. Occasionally if there's a VERY good reason, but that's generally not how I choose to create.
