Colorblock quilt variations || Quilting from every Angle

Hello again!

I am sharing five different quilt patterns from Quilting from every Angle with you, and today's stop is Colorblock.  All work was done by those who volunteered to make a quilt from the book, and all photography was done by the individual who made the quilt.  Each person chose their fabrics and were permitted to do whatever they liked with the pattern.  I had no say in what they chose to do with it or the colors and fabrics they used.  Basically, I gave them free reign.  It's their quilt anyways, and I wanted it to reflect their own personalities, not mine.

What is really interesting and nice to see is other people's interpretations of your patterns.  I love seeing a design of mine in a color way I normally would not gravitate towards because it helps me to see how many varieties the design can take, and maybe, it will one day encourage me to branch out of my own comfort zone.  Sometimes, people see things in a way you never could have imagined.  I think that is why I love quilting and art so much.

Quilting from every Angle is a book that shows my love for design.  It is filled with unique and graphic quilts.   I really wanted quilt designs that could appeal to younger and older generations, but my main focus was to grab the attention of quilters who loved graphic design and modern day textile art.  Although all of my quilts are rooted in traditional piecing and shapes, the combination I did with these things makes the patterns stand out and are very graphic.  I hope that you enjoy the quilt patterns I am sharing with you this week.

I love the look of log cabins.  They are very versatile, and I had to sneak one into the book.  :)  I replaced one of the strips with HSTs, but really, you could take it further by adding more.  I have two more designs in mind with this pattern that I hope to find time to explore!  I chose a weaved solid by Alissa Haight Carlton for In the Beginning Fabrics, which for this pattern, lent a unique look that I love.  This is the kind of quilt that needs to be seen in person to see how fantastic the colors are.  Log cabins are great for beginner quilters.
