Oh Scrap! : Licorice Allsorts

We have been experiencing a heatwave here so I have been staying indoors where it is a bit cooler.  That means time in my sewing room!



 I have been working on the cornerstones for the quilt along hosted by crazy mom quilts.  I went with a bit bigger scale so my cornerstones need to be 6" square.  Rather than using a larger piece of fabric,  I decided to piece mine using more scraps!



I threw a few pieces up on my design wall to see how it looks.  I am using a black and white widescreen fabric for the background.  I am excited to get this one together!



I have all of my pieces cut and ready for assembly next week.  Last week, Karen said my strip sets look like Licorice Allsorts so that is what I am calling this quilt.  I think the name is perfect!

    I love your plan for the cornerstone blocks! The bright solids look great with the black fabrics. This will be a beautiful quilt!

    I feel for all of you in the heat wave areas - if you are in the SW it is really hot there and I bet a lot of sewing is going on as it is way too hot to be outside.

    Its a good thing you spent all that time outside before the heatwave!! The temps keep rising higher and higher every year. I use to love Allsorts and I do indeed see the connection!

    Getting ready to start a Halloween quilt of my own design using some panels and filling in the spaces. A bit daunting to go without an actual pattern, but am excited. Love the colors of your quilt.

    No idea what is Licorice Allsorts , but I love the bright fabrics against the black background. So many sew-alongs, so little time. Aaah!!!

    I love the bold contrasts in this piece. Using blocks for cornerstones is a great idea! I wonder why we don't see it very often. Perhaps you are a trend setter :)
