Modern Blocks part one – alternate colorways

I mentioned that I had made each of my blocks in another colorway to coordinate with each other. The color scheme was actually based off of the colors I used for the stargazing block, so I didn’t remake that one. But you’ll be able to see the versatility of the blocks with different fabrics.

I was still fiddling with the construction method when I made this, but I love the colorways. I wanted to see a non rainbow option. I may love this one more than the first, but it’s a tough call.

I used another focus fabric here, the tufted tweets. It’s such a strong pattern, I wanted to keep the rest of the block simple. So no fussy cut center block and simple green fabrics for the inner strips.

It was still important to me to keep the pattern of focus fabrics running in one direction…so I specially cut the tweets again for that. And look here at how this block would be on point! So much movement!

Doublemint - alternate colorway

Still a mix of solids and prints, but I love the large grey polka dot in the background. And the running stripe from Nicey Jane looks so Matrixy in the background.

I hope you all enjoy these other versions of the blocks I designed. I hope to make a quilt with all of the coordinating versions of the blocks and make a bunch of the other blocks from the book…my very own souvenir from this project!

  1. I like them all … perhaps the diamond design captivates me most but because I'm a beginner I think I'm wise to focus on the simpler pattern in the middle … all straight lines. Yeah. That's my style. For now.

    Liking the purple and greens!

  2. These are just wonderful. Like you, I like the circle one in this colorway; but I love anything made with Tufted Tweets. I have just a tad of it left here, and I can see a few blocks made like yours.

    Thx so much for showing us these.
