All the Albersesque

Going through my list of current and upcoming projects the other day, I was reminded that I still need to pull my Bee Sewcial Albersesque blocks into a quilt top. Fortunately, I have an idea for that!! Meanwhile, I thought it would be fun to show off all the blocks I received from my bee mates, each inspired by the work of Josef Albers. First up are my own inspiration blocks.

Aren't they a fantastic bunch? Like I said, I have an idea for the quilt top, but need to choose background colors and probably order the fabric. I'm really looking forward to puzzling this one together!


  1. Definitely a fantastic bunch and that's great that you have an idea for the quilt top. I look forward to seeing these come together into a cohesive whole!

  2. Wow, that's exciting! Variations on a theme, yes. What book do I see open in Felicity and M-R's photos? Thanks for sharing and what background I'm wondering?

  3. The blocks are all awesome! I am excited to see how you put it together. xo

  4. What a cool group of blocks! Will be fun to see how you create a quilt top from them. I always enjoy seeing what your Bee group is up to!

  5. Oh yes! They sure are a fantastic bunch. The colors and shapes are so appealing. And if I'm honest, they remind me a little bit of Ringle and Kerr's modern quiltalong. Good stuff! You'll have fun putting these all together.
