|Today is my day for the Pixelating Blog Hop... or as I call it. The Pixel Blog Hop. lol. Pixelating is such a long word.|
I am quickly becoming addicted to making pixel quilts. I have made 3 so far and am working on another now.
I would love to show you the quilts I have made... but they are Christmas gifts and the lucky people who will receive the gifts may see this post. So, you will all have to wait until a post right after Christmas! I'll plan to loop back on the 26th with pictures.
I can show you a fun pop up my sister made using Quiltoni's book, Designing Block Quilts. The technique was easy to follow and fun! The sky is really the limit for what you can do with block quilts... or block pop ups!
The first thing to do is to choose a subject... my sister decided on a butterfly. Here is her inspiration image:
She graphed it out and creating this using graph paper:
Then she pieced the side of the pop up, added stabilizer and sewed it up. This is a large stacking pop up:
Didn't it turn out cute!!! It is so bright and happy.
