On Target

A girl can only have so many quilts. But what to do when you love to make them? Over the years, I have made quilts for my sister and sister-in-laws. This one belongs to Chris. I like to choose the colors they like and this is all about Chris. She is fun and funny, has a great sense of humor, sees the light side, is generous with all. She's also a great puzzler and the geometric design of these blocks fits her Sudoku and other gamesmanship loves. This quilt pattern is named Bouillabaisse. I call it On Target.

It's scrappy which might lead one to believe that it should be simple, an anything goes type of quilt. Not so. Making the strip sets required thought and then forming the blocks required color wheel considerations. And finally combining the large blocks to spread the color required a sense of the overall quilt top. The layout was more tedious than it seems.

But that is the fun for me.

What a lovely pattern. I don't think I've seen it before. Much more interesting than plain string blocks. Nice with all those bright/dark colors.
