Playing with colour

Well, I've finally cut into the Oakshotts and am really enjoying playing with these beautiful cottons, they feel and look divine.

The 1st 3 blocks so far:

Here's a closer view of a couple of them:

These 18.5" blocks are very improvisational, I start off with a general plan as to how I would like it to be, but the block evolves under construction and ends up being quite different to the original idea!
Well, that's 3 done......only another 27 more to go!
Happy in stitching :)

Looking good so far Giselle. Just playing is the best way to be creative because you never know what you are going to come up with. Enjoy the process.

Wow your blocks are amazing. They have a sort of art deco feel (at least to me). Can't wait for the next 27 blocks. It will be a fantastic quilt in the end. You have inspired me to cut into my own Oakshott box, finally ;)!

Enjoy how your creativity is allowed to express itself with these.
