Do you ever make or find a kind of complicated block you want to use in a quilt but it needs MORE but adding sashing around the blocks is not really what you want?! How about some sort of frame?
Here I have a simple fish from the EQ library
in a layout with other blocks it looks fine by kind of BIG
I wanted more of a “frame” around the fish and then also use a lighthouse block
I found an uneven nine patch
then when working on the block (page)
I did BLock/ serendipity, merge blocks
then I found my nine patch block as the background and the fish on the right
If you click on the fish it will turn it
as you can see I also had the same nine patch block modified to be a frame
With the same black frame then colored blue like the water and put into a quilt with the lighthouse, I made this quilt.
But did you notice under the serendipity options, there is a FRAME option!?
lots of neat frames in there
Hope you liked this little tutorial.
