When I saw the quilt \”Didn\’t Get the Memo\” by Alissa Carlton, Los Angeles, CA (shown below) I knew I wanted to make one.
I thought it would be a great bee block so this February the Harmony Circle of do. Good. Stitches. took on this challenge and created some wonderful improv blocks. My directions were the following:
Background: True white
Triangles: Black/grey solids
Please make 2 12.5in blocks with 16 squares each, 4×4. Each square will be trimmed to 3.5in before being sewn together into a 4×4 block.
Make sure that the squares are made as shown below:
– Triangles facing the left
– Wonky triangle should only cover one corner, the other 3 corners being open, allowing for the \”floating\” look of the triangles
I pieced the top back in May, but it took me a while to actually find the time in the summer to quilt it, so hence the delay in posting the finished product. 🙂
Here is the finished quilt. I bound it in a multi color stripe to add some pizzazz and color to it.
I also wanted to add a pop of color to the back so I did some solid piecing with scraps down the middle.
We had a bit of trouble with the wind while we were trying to take pictures. Here are some of the outtakes.
Overall, great block and great quilt for a bee. Thanks to Alissa Carlton for the inspiration and to my Harmony Circle mates for great execution!
