The Quilt Show Puzzle: "Color Grid" by Cindy Grisdela

Do a puzzle of Cindy Grisdela's quilt, Color Grid.


Color Grid is emblematic of Cindy's usual process when making a quilt, that is, dumping a box of scraps and start making improv log cabin blocks. Cindy says, "Many of my designs start out with scraps from other projects and Color Grid was no exception. I usually don’t know exactly what the piece is going to look like when I start–this one began with 4″ squares of bright Improv blocks, grounded with neutrals and black stripes. The colors seem to float across the background grid, which is where the name came from. Irregularly spaced vertical lines in a soft pastel thread adds texture."
