My Colossal Blocks Baby Quilt at WeAllSew

I finished this giant tumbling blocks baby quilt a few weeks ago, and the Colossal Blocks Baby Quilt tutorial series has just been posted today at BERNINA's WeAllSew blog! Click right here to find Part 1 of the series.

Did you happen to catch the Serious Play: Design in Midcentury America exhibit last year? It was amazing! If you didn't see the exhibit, there's a beautiful book all about the event you should look for, it includes wonderful photos and information about the designers showcased in the exhibit. I bought a copy and it's become one of my favorite tea-break books to page through.

What inspired me most from the exhibit was the extraordinary color palettes used by the designers in everyday objects. I saw lots of bright pinks alongside yellows, blues, and greens. Not to mention the amazing toys gathered together in the exhibit (like The Toy or Eames personal collection of tops) that incorporated bright colors and bold, geometric shapes.

Those bright colors and bold shapes were totally the inspiration for this baby quilt.

I think this little quilt expresses that Midcentury playfulness, what do you think?
