Round 1 Complete

I have spent the past few days looking at quilt books, auditioning fabric, sketching, and just plain thinking about what I was going to do for Round 1. This afternoon I had an opportunity to spend time with my little center block and my sewing machine. I stared going in a totally different direction with the triangles and then all of a sudden, I realized sawtooth triangles had a dog t00th look---why not. My theme seems to be headed toward dogs and dots---so I decided to go with fabric that had dots and the yellow was added for a little spark. This was a true liberated experience---for all my books, auditions, sketching I just sat at the machine and let it happen. I think the "happy" center block still looks happy and I had fun. Looking forward to the June 10 round.


  1. What a creative and thoughtful way to add to the block. Very nice to hear the back story too!

    : )

  2. Jan, you've made your center block really "pop"; the triangles and the colors really give it movement.

  3. I'm really laughing at your dog tooth rendition. Looks great with the fabrics in your block. I find too that just starting the sewing rather than drawing everything out, works for me too!

  4. Yes, this is going to be a happy RR, love it !
