This month I'm participating in A to Z Challenge, where 100's of bloggers around the world challenge themselves to write every day for the month of April, working their way through the alphabet. I'm sewing a patchwork block for each letter of the alphabet. Each day I will share that block and a little about the block and direct you to where you can find a tutorial for that block on the Web.
Welcome to the first day of the A to Z Bloggging Challenge for 2017.
Today's letter is A an the block's name is Abstraction.
This block is an original design by Marcia Hohn's from Quilter's Cache and can be found here
Whilst this block is labelled an original design, meaning that it isn't a recognized traditional block and was specifically designed by Marcia, it is made up from traditional units.
Its a combination of quarter square triangle units, of 2 sizes (larger one in the centre, smaller ones in the corners)
When I started out on this project I had thought that I would make it a blue quilt. That idea lasted one block - this one and by the 2nd one I was yeah... nah. And its completely scrappy.
That is by way of a warning.
Believe me... things are going to get wild and crazy.. or at least colourful.
