Back in December, I shared a photo of a Cord of Wood and the quilt design that had spring from that photo…..
Then earlier this month, I described an amazing set of hand-dyed fabrics that I bought.
Now it was time to merge these two!!
As I was ironing all of the hand-dyed fabrics, I kept thinking about this pattern and decided that it might be gorgeous to do in blues with touches of yellow!!
I started out by cutting a LOT of 1.5-inch strips…..
Have you ever used a barbell to keep your ruler from sliding?? Try it some time….it really works and you get some exercise at the same time!!
Next I did a lot of sewing, sub-cutting and re-sewing to get it to this stage…..
WOW… I REALLY like those colors!!
Next was making the accent blocks, using paper piecing…..
….and then laying the whole thing out……
I tried flipping some of the triangle sets around……
But all I could see here were Gator mouths!!
I added an orange-ish border…..the only fabric that is not hand-dyed……
…..and voila….this idea has moved from paper to fabric!!!
I am contemplating what type of quilting to add and can’t wait to see it finished.
I am also debating about turning this into a pattern but haven’t made that decision for sure. What do you think…..is this pattern worthy???

That is a very cool project. Yum! I have barbells. hmmm! I have subscribed!
Woohoo…thanks for subscribing!!!
This turned out beautifully!
Hurray…..you can comment again!!! And thanks….I am happy with the design too but I think that the fabrics have a lot to do with it.
