I have enjoyed all the photo's of the Steam Punk Quilt popping up on blogs and IG.
Steam Punk reminds me of a few blocks with a similar feel that I have long loved...
this one is from a book I have had for several years....Link To The 30's. Full of great 30's era quilts.
Apparently, this block was originally known as Bulls Eye...
I have enlarged the pattern, but I need to tweak the templates a bit...
The piecing would be perfect for hand piecing. It is a bit challenging to piece by machine...
but definitely a block to remember...
Wow. What a gorgeous block. It does look very involved. Will you make more or stay with one?ReplyDelete
Love the way you use red and green and make it work!!ReplyDelete
wow!!! What a stunning block!ReplyDelete
What a beautiful block! I love the fabrics you picked. I'm going to have to look up that book!ReplyDelete
It's stunning! Lovely work againReplyDelete
Lovely and colourful! :) xReplyDelete
I love the kitschy look of this--both the block and your fabric choices.ReplyDelete
wow, beautiful block - the colours pop out beautifully.ReplyDelete
Wow, how beautiful! Also the yellow makes wonderful background!ReplyDelete
I have that book too Mary! Looking good...love the thirties stuff!ReplyDelete
This is such a great block Mary! The gingham check border is perfect!ReplyDelete
That is such a great block, and made beautifully, as always in your gorgeous fabric choices. I've got a book called Cotton Candy Quilts about 30's quilts that has a block the same as that used in Steampunk.ReplyDelete
Mary, your style is sew captured in this block!ReplyDelete
Looks very tricky Mary. I think I'd be appliqueing that one if it was me :0)ReplyDelete
It looks difficult...but I love it...as I do everything you make!ReplyDelete
And I found a version of "steampunk" made by Freddy Moran, but she called it airplane propellers. What's old is new again, and your beautiful example shows us one more way to appreciate our quilting heritage!ReplyDelete
a very atractive block but with those curves looks too complicated for meReplyDelete
Definately lovely...don't you just love playing with fabric???ReplyDelete
