Last night, as I was trying to fall asleep, I had an idea that wouldn't wait until morning. I was thinking of math and that led to the graph for y = 1 / x. Don't ask. I like how it looks as a quilt block, but also that it's geeky. :)
|This will become something for my math teacher friend|
So I got up and drew up this template in Illustrator, as well as couple possible quilt layouts that you can print out and color!
The quilt block is paper pieced, but I think it would be cool if you just winged it and made it wonky. Just start with a 6.5" square of background color and piece on rectangles in the same order as the paper pattern.
I'm super obsessed with pulling colors from photos now, so here are a few color combinations that I've been playing with.
Quilt: (this one would measure 36" x 36")
Pillow covers / mini quilts:
Quilts: (these would be 36" x 48")
As always, I'd love to see what you make from this! Please add photos to my Flickr group so that we can all ohh and ahh over them. :)
