My Quip – Chopsticks Update – Second Draft Design Completed and Chosen

Good Day,

Our second draft of our design, inspired by the Rail-Fence pattern, for our new and next quilt, Chopsticks, has been completed. The question was, do we create -


Or Abstract?

The numbers on each block represent all 120 blocks that we are using in the inner top of our Chopsticks design. Each block is created and pieced of 10 strips 1 ½” by 5 ½”. And yes there is an ordered random-like construction method used for each block. The inner top will be 10 blocks wide and 12 blocks long.

We decided to work an abstract design based on a background glowing light grid polka dot pattern from an iPad mini.

And the piecing work has begun.

The inner top fabric is all from one Robert Kaufmann jelly roll – Chop Chop.
