Pooled Color

Can't say I'd heard of the term 'pooled color' when Kari/@quiltsforthemaking posted it as this month's Bee Sewcial prompt. But the pin board she shared made it abundantly clear what she meant.


I wasn't really sure if I should 'just' group color swatches together or do a lot of piecing for each 'pool' or what exactly. So I came up with a simply pieced block to duplicate over and over again, making the sizes and shapes all squarish, yet improvisational.


Kari also asked for some off-white negative space and I actually had to minimize that since my block was already oversized. But at 22" x 24" I think it makes a statement, and those simply pieced blocks add alot of texture. It was definitely enjoyable and I may need to explore with these components again!
