60-Degree Quilt

Quilt designs don't typically just pop into my head.  I'm not very imaginative.  I play around with blocks on the computer until I see something I halfway like.  So when I dreamt about this quilt a few nights ago (probably the salsa I ate way too late), I couldn't wait to see how it worked out. 


These are just some of the units thrown up on my design wall in no order. 
I have a long way to go before it turns into a quilt, but I'll be sharing my progress as I go.  
And maybe do a tutorial -- it's so much fun! 

Have a great day!

Maybe I should eat salsa late in the evening! Perhaps you've started a new trend in quilt design. This is spectacular. Special ruler?

What fun! A tutorial would be great :-) Was it peach salsa? It looks like that's what you may have been thinking about :-)

Quilt Hollow said...

You ALWAYS amaze me!!! Just look at you AND I might add....lovely fabric choices!! You've come a long way since we first "blog met"...I'm talking moving away from those browns, civil wars etc. I too am learning it is so FUN to work with something "out of the ordinary for me." Though....still decorate my home with those old worn colors. :-) This one won't be for a book since your offering a tutorial soon?

Kristi said...

love it!

Kelli said...

This looks great so far. Love the bright "salsa-like" colors.. I would love to see the tutorial in the future! Love it.

So will you be calling it "Salsa"?

There's a bit of a food theme going on here - my word verification is "cakes"

Darlene B said...

This looks like an awesome design - it would be great to have a tutorial on this. Sure looks complicated!

You dreamed that! Wish I had such interesting dreams!
