You know when you need to finish a project? I think it is like when you are reading a suspenseful novel and you just need to know who the killer is? I am actually just guessing about this because I am a huge wuss and I can't read suspenseful novels without getting nightmares (okay, back off this tangent, sorry friends).
I designed this block for my month of the Simply Solids Bee (Gamboge group represent!). I even wrote a tutorial, if you want to make your own. I mailed out long strings of super bright colors with some Kona Snow.
It was pretty wonderful to come home from work all April to happy rainbow blocks in the mail.
Then, they all arrived and I had to decide what to do...
So, I did what any rational person would do, and asked Instagram. I can't remember who had the offset idea, but it was perfect.
To give the eye a place to rest, I added the gray diamond. Or we could say it is some sort of artistic commentary? Bonus, this way I get to use one leftover block on the back.
So far this is just a quilt top, but the obsession is not over, and I suspect I am going to be quilting this week!
Okay, I am entering this in Rachel's Festival of Strings over at Stitched in Color. You should go get inspired, I totally am.
