Gen X Quilters. I hemmed, I hawed, I dithered, I vacillated, and finally had to have a serious talk with myself! It's only a quilt! The premise of the BOM is to make a modern looking quilt choosing solids or a variety of tone-on-tones. First I gave a cursory glance at the old stash and made a dash for the LQS. Yes, even though I made a resolution to Stick To The Stash I indulged and bought the recommended tone-on-tones, 20 FQs, only to get home and decide, naw, not what I had envisioned. Back to the stash it was! I actually found 5 one yard pieces only to have two of the reds bleed when I, thank goodness, tested them for colorfastness. It's not that I am clever, but these pieces were at least 20 years old. What to do? My LQS came to the rescue and had a small Valentine's Day sale that I ended up getting the stack you see at the top.
That is January A and January B, February A and February B blocks you see. I am finding the Vice Versa BOM fun since I settled on fabric. I haven't worked with solids in ages knowing I had a limited amount in the stash. I went through a phase back in the mid 90s where that's all I worked with. I find them very unforgiving as you see every imperfection, any mis-stitch seems to stand out.
Anyway, I played around with the instructions and made the blocks a bit different, more loyal to the name Vice Versa.
Is anyone else doing this BOM?
Talk to you later~
