Quiltober V - VI - VII

I've really been enjoying the fabric-play inspired by the Quiltober prompts, and my interpretations continue to be rather loose. All's good.

Day V - Bones :: This is one of my favorite blocks so far. I used one of Carolyn Friedlander's bone prints as my feature fabric, with a few more added in for contrast. [13" x 16"]

Surprisingly, my blocks have grown larger with each prompt! Not sure what that's about, but I'm really liking them together.

Day VI - Carve :: My first thought when I saw this prompt was how I slice through fabric with my rotary cutter when I do improv curves. So I combined that slow, easy motion with skinny inset piecing. I don't even remember why I added a width of background fabric to the bottom at the end and added one last curve, but I'm glad I did. [7" x 11"]

Day VII - Spiky :: I kept this one super simple and just made a couple of short spiky strips using the scraps on my cutting table. I may sew the two strips together eventually. We'll see when it comes time for puzzling the quilt top together. [4" x 14"]


  1. I'm really drawn to your interpretation of Carve, and seeing how the blocks work with one another has me excited to see where this continues to evolve for you.

  2. I love the Spiky strips and the curves, exciting piecing for October!

  4. It's fun to see these different blocks develop. The carve block is especially nice with the added inset near the bottom.
