I couldn't wait to get my hands on Jennifer's Circle 7 quilt. She requested low volume background with a range of solid colors. I had a hard time narrowing down what to make because there were so many fun directions to explore with this quilt. I have found that to be the best challenge in this bee - my mind will spin with ideas for each person's quilt and the narrowing down to just one or two designs is the hard part.
I first made this Racing Stripes panel since I've been wanting to explore this theme again. I felt it was perfect to add this to her quilt since I debuted the original Racing Stripes on her blog during a feature she did on me here.
And because I'm a lover of improv piecing, and I know Jenn is as well, I made this sort of pixelated improv block to also add to her quilt. This type of piecing always takes time, but the end result is worth it in my mind. Can you imagine a whole quilt done this way?! It would be fantastic!
I love seeing how these quilts evolve over time! I'll be trying to post updates on the other quilts in this bee over these next couple of weeks. I can hardly believe these quilts will be done soon!
