QUILT BLOCK MANIA AUGUST 2022
Welcome to another Quilt Block Mania! For this month, August 2022, the theme is the jungle, and there are so many fun blocks to grab and try out!
TRADITIONALLY PIECED AND BEGINNER FRIENDLY
This month I created a traditionally pieced block design. There are a lot of pieces, but each piece is either a rectangle or a square, so it's very beginner friendly. In fact, if you're a beginner, this is a fun project to try if you're wanting something a a bit more complicated in the construction but still quick and easy to finish in an afternoon. This will give you experience with smaller pieces and a detailed layout, but there are no angles or specialized blocks (no half square triangles or flying geese here).
INSPIRED BY PIXEL ART
I was inspired by pixel art when designing this block. I made an appliqué style design last month for July 2022, and I wanted to create something a bit different for August. I almost made it so this quilt would be entirely made of tiny 1" squares, but thought better of it when I decided no one would actually want to make that, lol. I simplified the design to seven colors and this is what I came up with.
