Happy Second Advent! Are holiday decorations are still happily stored away, but hope to change all of that this afternoon after the blog post is finished.
If you are new here, thanks for stumbling across my website and blog, especially the Transparendo Sewalong. Transparendo is the newest quilting book featuring a modern sampler quilt using transparent quilt blocks to make a comfy-sized sofa quilt ~ 60" x 80".
We are entering our second to last week of the sewalong. The pattern is setup with the easiest blocks first followed by more difficult blocks; the difficulty increases with each block. You have two weeks to finish up your quilt or sew one of the alternate blocks if you decided to swap one out.
Are you sewing along with us? Enter your finished quilt top for the random drawing in Week 15 for your chance to win a full-version copy of EQ8 sponsored by our platinum sponsor - The Electric Quilt Company.
This week's hashtag is #transparendosalw14 for Week 14, Bonus Blocks.
Please sign up for our newsletters to keep on top of the sewalong.
Week 14 Prize
Week 14 - (Bonus Blocks)
I really wanted to make the Radar Signal block, because I feel it shows a very interesting transparency effect. it is also my own design! However, my holiday schedule is starting to get booked up quickly, so this week I chose to make one single bonus block - Delicate Knots. This block was inspired by the quilt block found in EQ8 - Simple Knot which is found in the Electric Quilt Library and is another Nine Patch block. Do you see the nine quadrants? I added the transparency squares where the two fabrics overlap.
