Gridlock

 

Wanda is making a Kaffe Fassett quilt called Gridlock and I decided to do the same. We are still using a large queen on our king bed so it is about time!

I picked a pile of fabric from my stash in soft blues, golds, purples etc. that blended well but with a good range of values. I wanted soft rather than contrast, muted rather than bright. Blocks finish at 12" so for a king, I need 90 or so, without borders. 

My hubby really likes this. 

So far, these are the ten that are on the wall. The photo shows more contrast than actual, but I took it at night with LED lighting. I'll try the next one in the daytime. These show the darkest fabrics I have and the lightest. Hopefully the range will be a pleasing array!

I think your range of fabrics is really good. Will be watching for your progress. That is a lot of blocks to make.

I've been following all the Gridlock quilters--the pattern is calling to me. I noted that the original version (Glorious Patchwork) pieces the blocks differently than the subsequent versions.
