A couple of the ladies in the QOV group have the die cutters, one the Go and the other the Studio. I requested some chisel shapes to play with so Rita cut a batch for me. I was doodling with the shape and light dark values in a sketch and came up with the block on the left. If we make the center 4 matching it should give a nice effect. Then I made a little braided border piece and found that this uses both rights and lefts so the fabric doesn't have to be all stacked face up when cutting like it does for the other one.
Then I flipped the quarters of the block to see what will happen when four blocks come together. I think this could be very interesting. You can see we have a wide variety of prints donated to us so they will be really scrappy.
Then I was looking through this book and found a quilt that uses the chisel shape.
The author has a blog that you might enjoy checking out.
It is a neat design and just has to have good separations of values in the lights and darks for the design to show up well.
We had a very good sew in yesterday with lots of ladies showing up to work on the QOV quilts. I can't show you the tops from my kits because they got put into someone else's pile to go home. I will be picking them up next week and putting borders on them and I'll show them then.
