I'm Serious About This One...

This was my favorite quilt from the exhibit in Indianapolis. I have every good intention of making my own version of this dynamic quilt. The vibrant red fabric used in the side triangles, and outer border really grabbed my attention.
When I saw the online swatchs of the new Crossroads to Texas line by Betsy Chutchian, there was a perfect, equally striking bold print on deep blue. So, mine won't be a replica, but I hope to do it justice!Fun description of this quilt...Block measurement... Border measurement...When the fabric arrives, I'll be good to sew!

I didn't think I liked churndash blocks on point, but now I can say I do. Would love to inspect the fabrics in this quilt. Can't wait to see yours!

Great choice - will your quilt be a similar colourway?

I love the staggered setting of the blocks...you'll have fun with this!

I just recently noticed a churn dash on point in a LQS and loved it. This is great. Not a common block size to deal with. Are you going to alter the measurements at all?

Dawn said...

Those are great fabric choices - hope they arrive soon.
Love the checked binding!
Looking forward to seeing your version.
