The wait is over and here is my Pantone quilt challenge project - minis category. It is also part of my Q1 FAL list which you can check here.
It all started with few strips. I seen a bag with flap made out by meshwork technique. I just couldn't resist and I had to try it out. I love tumbling blocks for some reason.
My trial looked good so I had to figure out what to do with it next. How about a bigger tumbling block?!
So I made a cardboard template and stitched the cube together using EPP technique. The top part is much thicker than the sides but it adds texture and a bit of 3D effect.
At first I wanted to do sashiko tumbling block background but once I pulled the white dots out I quickly changed my mind. It adds even more interest at least for my eyes :-)
So I turned the whole thing into mini for my sewing corner as I just want to keep looking at that thing. The size is based on my board which is already there. Those two stripes on the binding are pieced in different direction on purpose. Little details are what I like.
I didn't want the quilting to be visible on front. There are straight lines within the white dots and you can see it better on back side. The fabric I used for back is print. When I talk with my friends about the things I like they told me couple of time "it's Vasarely". I couldn't even remember the name at first but I looked that up and yes you should really check his work out! So the undertone of my piece is Vasarely :-)
It measures 14x16".
