Outback Wife fabrics were quite a rage back when life was different. I had seen several makes from the first collection and when the second grouping was released, I jumped on a 1/2 yard stack of all the prints. I knew I wanted a very scrappy top made with everything combined and I started making 1/2 sq triangles out of each print.
This has been "in the works" for a long time. It's languished on my design wall at my second studio, (that I have rarely gone to in the past year) but I decided it was time to start sewing the blocks together. My colors were organized and then, due to neglect, most blocks fell to the floor. Upon re-engaging with this project, I twisted the blocks for row 3. So now it's going to be row 4. The plan is to make 4 sections 5 x 5 and that will make a good sized quilt.
My inspiration is from this book. I love so many pieces in here, but the zig zag really sung to me with the Outback collection.
Notice how the 4th row switches direction? It's very subtle and I think it adds interest. There *might* be some zags instead of zigs further along, it depends on how closely I pay attention to things.
and for something different, here are the four Camelot blocks that I got pieced over Christmas. I have several more blocks prepped for future travel.
Enjoy your weekend, and keep stitching!
