Free Quilt Block Pattern "Cross My Mind" from Brigitte Heitland for Moda Blockheads and Color Studies
Week #9 in Moda Blockheads is brought to us from Brigette Heitland of Zen Chic. The block, "Cross My Mind" can be found on Brigitte's blog through clicking the bar below.
I am doing a small orange block so my color play starts there. I like how the thinner sashing strips can be evenly spaced light and dark or ramp up and down in light and dark versions of a color, like steps. You can play with different colors or white and darks in the corner squares or treat them like horizontal color bands.
Black, gray and white with a pop of red in those side bars make a graphic abstract block where the negative space is just as important as the sashings. The color spectrum version plays with the subtle difference of white extending from center to outreaching arms or a darker center that creates a center like a receding window.
My orange block in 4.5" size uses Tangerine and Apricot Thatched with prints from Abby Rose.
I also caught up with a couple of the bonus blocks, Star Turn and Zipper, which happen to also be in cheery oranges!
Here is how my grid is potentially looking so far! And the group of blocks all together in yellow, orange, pink and green colors.
Thanks Brigitte for this week's block!
