Off and Running

 Cultural Fusion quilt #3 started! The background - white and black print - is from the Architextures line. The purple dotted fabric will change with each block but remain in the blue/violet/purple spectrum. I have never made three projects from one book. I think I have hit my stride.

Rail Fence #2 is almost finished. Still needs some tweaking. There is one block for sure that I will replace. Two more blocks and then begins the process of deciding on the final setting. The quilt in Sujata's book has 30 blocks in a 5 x 6 setting. I originally thought I would also make that size, but have changed my mind and will settle with a 4 x 5 size. The blocks finish at 16" square, so it's still a fair sized top.


  1. your cultural fusion is pretty magnificent looks complicated and wonderful can`t wait to see the other blocks and then the quilt

  2. Ooh, this is an intriguing block - purple is my favourite colour so look forward to seeing how this develops!

    1. I love purple, too and don't use it often enough.

  3. I love the background fabric for your Peppermint Pinwheels - LOVE it.

  4. Yes, I think it is a good size. I think you have done a great job with it!

    Is that still Sedona Star on the wall behind it? I've been saying I'm going to restart it this fall, but then I add up all my projects and I am less sure...
