I had all my fabrics pulled and ready to go but I couldn't decide between the two blacks for the background of the block. I did a test of each and let that sit for a couple days.
My first instinct was to go for the more solid black fabric, but when I asked for my husband's opinion, he immediately went for the Architectures print and said, "That one's different from what you usually do and a little more rock and edgy looking." With a block named after a White Stripes song, I'll take rock and see what happens!
I loved the results but it was a little more work to keep all those scrawling sentences correctly aligned. I had to pull out the seam ripper a couple times - which can be a royal pain with all of those tiny stitches through fabric and paper.
All 16 squares went together pretty quickly over a couple days and then the whole mini began to take shape! I really love how it all turned out...just look how many shapes emerge from this pattern!
I think it would be an amazing looking full-sized quilt, but the amount of time it takes to take out all that paper - no matter how well its perforated to begin with - just takes a lot of time. Wine helps.
So now I just have to figure out how to quilt it...any suggestions??
