The second quilt is Gong Show by Lesly at Stitch Literate. Another stunner! I love the positive/negative thing happening in this quilt, the use of the brown as the neutral solid, as well as the clever configuration of multiple sized drunkard's path pieces. Anybody else oohing and aahing?

Also on my NewFO list is a category called "Oddly Inspired," which is where the Hubcap Diamond Star Halo quilt is fitting in, inspired by song lyrics. But I'm obviously not the only one who thinks "Quilts Are Everywhere." Sandi (Piecemeal Quilts) was recently inspired by a drawing of iron window coverings from a 1930s building. She transferred the drawing to EQ and came up with several colorways. Now she's agreed to do an Ironwork Quilt Along based on that design. I am excited about that!
|Ironwork* Quilt Along at Piecemeal Quilts|
I've ordered my fabrics from Connecting Threads. Instead of black for the ironwork, I chose Rosewood, which is dark enough to appear almost black (I think), but it's, well, rosewood-y. Think possibly rusty ironwork? I dunno, just being a little different in that one detail, seeing as I'm totally copying one of her EQ colorways, otherwise.
Want to quilt along? Visit Sandi's blog for the details, grab the button, pull together some fabric, and you'll be all set!
