Electric Quilt has a Design Challenge this month using Deb Tucker's Island Batik collection Twilight Chic. I participated in a blog hop for this awesome collection not too long ago so this challenge was right up my alley.
I had a design that I had worked on a while back that hadn't quite been finished and this seemed the perfect time to do just that. The texture in the Island Batik fabric really adds to any quilt.
Do you see what I mean about texture?
This is the block I used in my design. It looks complicated, doesn't it? Well it isn't! The first thing to do is make a Shaded Four Patch. The technique sheet tells you how to make using your Tucker Trimmer.
Can you see the Shaded Four Patch in the block? No? That's because the lower left corner has been popped using the awesome Corner Pop tool.
Now let's take a Sliver off the right side. This is a technique for the Corner Beam tool.
Almost there. Let's just give it one more little pop on the lower right corner.
Now the fun really begins when you put more than 1 of these blocks together. Isn't this fabulous?
Thanks for stopping by and joining in the challenge.
