"Lightning Strikes" top finished
Number 63 top in my 2" series is finished.
I've named it "Lightning Strikes" - due to the zig zag nature of this design.
I want to try it with 1 1/2" strips instead of 2" strips. I can't wait to try it in fact! It will be pretty intense to make - doesn't look like it should be, does it? It's pretty deceiving! LOL. OK. Actually, "making the 9 patches" wasn't hard - but laying it out was a bit daunting. I kept checking my printed sheet for help.
But before I attempt it with smaller blocks I need to search around for more tan - or maybe I'll try a different color way like gray and white - but I liked the "subtleties" of using tan and white as contrast
It took almost as long to actually put this together once the blocks were made as it took to make the blocks. Warning!
I have just run out of time for the pattern right now.
We are in the states at the moment and I didn't have enough time to properly (or even an attempt at properly) write up a pattern for this before we left.
However, I should have it by the time I actually show a finished quilt!
If I heard from someone that they really wanted to make it, I'd have motivation to bump it to the top of the list of patterns to finish up.
That's it for now! I hope you have a great day wherever this finds you reading! We should be traveling to Phoenix today - leaving from Denver.
