Mason's Quilt

14 comments
A few weeks ago for my birthday Lori met me for lunch and gave me a great gift bag.  Among other goodies were 2 sets of Lori's rulers.
Lori calls this set thimbles.  They are also called tumblers.  I have made tumbler quilts for years.  They are so fun to make.

I had an idea I wanted to use this size ruler for a special quilt I'm working on.  I'm making "lanterns" with it.
I realize this may not look like the normal color or prints I use for my projects.  But stick with me.
There are some strange or odd fabrics (spoonflower) but in the end when I'm done with this I hope you will see where I'm going with this.  This quilt has a bit of humor attached.  I hope despite the drab gray used in between the lanterns, it will be a striking quilt.

It is striking already. Sometimes drab is a good background. It lets the other fabrics enjoy their place in the spotlight. ;)
