My project this week has been to start and to finish the May challenge for the Mighty Lucky club. This month’s challenge was set by Amy Gibson of Stitchery Dickory Dock and was all about effective contrast.
This was my fabric pull: a dark, three mediums and a light.
I chose the pinwheel block because I knew I could finish them quickly and I hoped the shapes would work for the challenge.
Blocks 1-3: The Value of Value
Blocks 4-6: Value Play
Blocks 7-9: Print Scale and Complexity
Blocks 10-12: Same-Hued Value Groupings
Ta-Done! The twelve completed blocks. My favourites are blocks 1, 9, 11, and 12.
This was my original block 9 (left) before I found a much larger print which was more effective for the study. (I know the left block is the better block, but not for the purpose of what we were learning!)
This block was perfection in my eyes. I needed a single low-contrast fabric to use for the background. When you’re making a red pinwheel block and you find a pinwheel fabric in your stash? It’s like the fabric gods are smiling at you.
Since this lovely project is done, I’m linking up with the always fabulous Amanda Jean at Crazy Mom quilts.
Happy weekend everyone!
