Accidental Block Design

One of the things I find the most fun about quilting is the possibility of stumbling on a happy accident.  As I was learning new techniques for making blocks, many times I would have a “what if I did this” moment, then after doing it either went “oops” or “wow, look what happened”.

These two block sections from a quilt I made in 2011, are examples of one of my happy accidents.  But at the time I made them I didn’t document exactly how I did it!  So this weekend I plan on trying to recreate them to post instructions on how they were made.  Stay tuned!
