Blocks on the Clothes Line--A New Quilt in Progress

by Judy Tucker

I recently found a quilt pattern which intrigued me. I knew immediately that Karen Lewis' "Blueberry Park" line printed by Robert Kaufman Fabrics would be perfect for it! 

The Blueberry Park prints, except the flowers, are grid based and the pattern I'm using, "Salt Air Crossings" by Moda Bake Shop is very clearly a grid based pattern. The crosses in the quilt pattern also echo the design in the fabric. 

I used "Disruption" to create more interest in the quilt designs for my last 2 quilts, the Low Volume Plus Signs/Floral Latte, and the Lab puppies. If you look very carefully at Karen Lewis' designs in the fabric above you'll see that she has used "Disruption" too! It was so much fun to find that in her design!

The "Salt Air Crossings" quilt pattern was designed for a jelly roll but I had fat quarters in my stash.  That turned out to be great. I was able to choose the colors I really wanted to use and I just cut my own 2 1/2 inch strips.

I can't wait to put these blocks together! 

My stack of UFOs (quilts in need if finishing) is starting to grow!! I'm going to need to do some quilting...soon!
