Scattered blocks challenge

Apologies to the early birds for my delayed block challenge post. – Niki
Amy and Niki with blocks
This month’s block lottery is based on the Scattered Blocks tutorial that our quilty neighbour, Lisa in Seattle,WA, posted on her blog Shiner’s View back in January 2012. We don’t forget a good thing!
However, since we can never leave well enough alone: For the VMQG block challenge we are going with solid centers of your choice of colour and low volume backgrounds. Low volume being white or cream with a subtle pattern that reads from a distance as a neutral. The effect should be to give the finished top some texture and depth. As I was making my samples I found myself slipping into Cheryl Arkison’s improv slab technique, which I think will works well with Lisa’s scattered centers.

Finished blocks should be trimmed to 5.5″ squares. They chain-piece like a dream so make lots to increase your chances of taking them all home at our September 15th meeting. One block = one ticket to win the lot!
