This is nice! Love the blues

Curt

was playing with scraps and watched a video on tube sewing.

True

Great blocks!

Silsbee

Great! And it's so funny because I tried my first two hourglass blocks just last night! Never heard of 'double hourglass'; I like them. :)

AllPatchedUp

He's doing such a great job...so proud of him. :)

It's fun to watch him look at things online and then find something he loves. He turns right around and has to try it out! lol I'm working on convincing him to just go purchase some fabrics and start a quilt of his own so he can do the whole process!! smile

Capetowngirl

Fantastic blocks, and great choice of complimentary colours

Curt

having fun matching colors

Silsbee

Look at you go! :)

True

These are great blocks...you are on a roll!

Curt

got my new sewing machine yesterday and did 6 blocks since I unpacked it. plus I bordered my pot holder... love it!! what a great valentines day gift Ang allowed me to have.

Silsbee

That is a FABULOUS Valentine's gift. Lucky!

how about joining a Doll Quilt / Miniquilt Swap to learn the whole quilting buisness - the first big quilt is really scary and with the small ones you can learn everything you need to make a quilt - but it's faster and you ruin less if it goes wrong and you can try out a lot of things ...

Posyp

That is some meticulous matching up, I guess the military training is paying off ;)

Curt

Ty for the compliment, I have definitely been trained to pay attention to detail.

Janquilter

These blocks are awesome! I love the 3-D effect that happens with them.

Terrysim

These are crazy good! I can't even imagine what you will be making a year from now, the way your skills are growing by leaps and bounds. Must have a good teacher! wink

Kathie

I can't wait to make the block, I haven't made this one and BOLD is my favorite way to go!

Rebeccajeffsmith

Your blocks are beautiful! I love the black backgrounds. So what is the relationship between you and Allpatchedup ?

Missriain

This is so terrific.

AllPatchedUp

Terrysim Ha! snort I agree...he must have a great teacher!! smiley

Rebeccajeffsmith Curt 's my better half....wait!! I'm his better half...yeah, that sounds better! hahahahaha He's stuck with me!! ;)

Terryt1955

These are very cool blocks! Love the bold colors and the striking contrasts in colors. How did you do the picture with all of them on a black background or is that black fabric?? It looks like you did some special effect?

Curt

that is the Kona black that I will be adding to it to finish the quilt

AllPatchedUp

He photographed them on the black fabric, then he went to picmonkey.com and played with the layout there. There's a collage feature that helps if you have a photo of each block. :)

Curt

Added True 's block to the picture. love it I guess every time I get another one I will add it.

True

So glad it got there safe and sound! I love how you took this picture and the collage thing that I would be clueless how to use...really a great tool for planning your layout!

Sewbusy64

I am loving this quilt. The blocks are stunning on the black background!

Curt

I love pic monkey and the best part is it is freeeeeeee.

Curt

Carolmarie yes I just started in February but have been watching AllPatchedUp for a long time so I learn with my eyes.

AllPatchedUp

He's a quick learner. ;) Watches closely and leans toward the perfectionist side. lol

Curt

Can you find your block(s)? they are all coming together so beautifully I love the hard work you all are putting in to this. LOVE LOVE LOVE

Curt

Quilbee and Kathie have been added now. this is so wonderful. ty all

True

This is truly going to be a spectacular quilt!

Sewbusy64

ok....you sold me on this quilt....it is incredible. love the colors & how they play on the black!!

Curt

I see it coming together now and I am getting so excited True . I knew you would come around sooner or later Sewbusy64 lol kinda want to go out and make one now huh?

Curt

a few more days and at least 4 more blocks

Sewbusy64

Curt

ty Ladyreed I got your blocks today and they are beautiful very clean points and I like the color match orange is one of my favorite colors. but then again so is blue and green and red and..... lol

Sewbusy64

Curt....As I have said before I just love the colors of this quilt. I received a new copy of the Connecting Threads magazine & a quilt on the back cover reminded me of you. I wish the pics I took were better. Here is link on my flickr account. :) http://www.flickr.com/photos/sewbusy64/8624939252/in/photostream/

Existitchialism I am able to use all except for one block the butterflies and green it is very pretty and it is sitting on my design wall it is just a little too small so it will be a back side of the quilt. I love the vibrant colors. I liked them so much i had to bump 3 of mine to the back.

Existitchialism

Oh, that's awesome! I'm so glad. :D

Existitchialism

I'm so thrilled, I just have to comment again! lol This is going to be a beautiful quilt.

Juline

This quilt reminds me of the Jewels game app. Very striking!

Strandkorbtraum

Wow - did you do all the other blocks? I mean looks like there are way more than 12 blocks in there...

Curt

Yes I did 15 and I got 16 from the bee

Curt

I am assembling them in the order that you see in the August pic monkey. Some will be rotated a quarter turn but other than that what you see will be the final product. now back to work for me

Curt

Everyone did really well with size I am only reducing each bock to 12.25 inches I have to switch one block out of the pic monkey picture because it only measured 11.75 total size, but no worries I got 4 blocks from that member.

Quilt455

Wow, this is great. Love how you put it all together

Curt

ty Quilt455 it has been a long time coming that I needed to put it together.

Missriain

Man, they look terrific on point! Love the dark background.

emptysea

Very cool block, Curt. Such a simple block that turned out stunning~!

HawkFan

Isn't it amazing how different blocks look when they're on point. The differences in background colors give it a bit of a shadow effect (at least in the pictures) that looks really cool

Capetowngirl

Wow Curt. I just love how you have put your blocks on point. Changes the whole look. And the dark background makes the hour glass blocks very vibrant.
