When I posted the latest mess, shown below, I got several helpful suggestions.
Nann suggested removing the borders and moving the blocks back to their original positions. I liked the idea of just removing the borders and sort of starting over, so that’s what I did.
The interesting thing is that this quilt was square without any effort. I hadn’t thought of quilt-as-you-go (QAYG) as a good way to get a square quilt, but apparently it was in this case, at least!
Name: Bauhaus II
Pattern: Bauhaus by Brigette Heitland
Made and quilted by me
Finished size: 44″ x 44″
Thanks to everyone for the suggestions!
Very nice! It turned out great. To keep the quilt more modern-looking, it was a good move to take off the borders.
Simple and perfect solution. It does keep it looking modern without the border.
Yes, I liked Nann’s idea and really hadn’t thought of it myself.
You didn’t try my whiskey idea?
Well, I did have a glass of wine with dinner 😁
That’s it! Perfect Bauhaus-esque setting! And the surprise being – finally – QAYG proved to be the technique for such an application. Will wonders never cease?
Nope, wonders don’t cease, even if we cease to notice them. Good thought for a Sunday 🙂
Very profound and worth remembering.
This one’s a winner!
That layout/design turned out wonderful, very crisp looking!
Thanks! I was lucky to find the exact black I needed for the background blocks.
