Focus on Fusing......2 Color Simple Block Composition



I am enrolled in Melody Johnson's







This weeks assignment from Melody:

Design or choose a simple block, using two colors (you may use multiple values of the same color) and make it in small, medium and large, and use it in a composition. 




I chose my 2 colors....

Black and White







I found a few black and white batiks that may 

get incorporated into this composition along 

with my own hand dyes.














Here are my simple blocks in 3 sizes...







I started cutting more squares in all sizes...







Adding more white lines...







I am happy with this composition...

it needs more.






The fused strip on the right works...







Opposite Blocks...

White Blocks with Black Strips







The white blocks add lots of excitement...







Time to add some batiks...

The gray batik softens the composition.

The circles balance out all of the lines.







Black and White Batik on bottom border...






Black Batik on top border...




 Completed Quilt Composition:


The curvy edge treatment helps to

soften up all of the straight lines.











Thanks Melody for a fun assignment!










I will post my homework 

as I complete it each week.




Every Friday Melody posts a 

new homework assignment.


 Melody is offering this as a FREE online class!
