Vol 2 Sophomore Final - the blocks

The test block will remain a test block because I'm not sure I like the black/white theme, at least not with a print.  I had a rummage through my stash looking for solids and came up with these - a cheesy yellow homespun and a dull orange hand dye.  They should look great on black........

Using the test block as a guide, I made up the five central blocks of the quilt. 
I don't think I can call my version Ice Crystals - it's more like Fire Embers - lol
Next comes the internal frame, which I haven't figured out yet.  This could get interesting!


  1. Thats a great colour way - can't believe how quickly you knocked these out! Its looking good for an exam pass.....

    1. Thanks Lisa. I'm not time poor so I have the luxury of spending as much time in my sewing room as I like. Right now I feel rather inspired! :)

  2. Love the orange and yellow on the black! Great choice!
