GONZO

Several times a year my guild has speakers that come with trunk shows of their quilts and often pattens and books they sell as well after the lecture.  This week Tiffany Hayes of Needle in a Hayes Stack was our speaker.  
For at least a couple of years I have had a stack of Alison Glass Handcrafted fabric sitting in my stash that I had no idea what to do with.  Tiffany had a pattern called Gonzo; the minute I saw it I knew it would be perfect for these fabrics.  Once home and fabric pulled out I realized that of course.  The pattern photo showed the piece in these exact fabrics.  I have a few different prints from the picture, but they all work anyway.
So I began to pull out and select fabrics.  The pattern has nine different rows of blocks.  Plus the pattern is only 28 by 36 so should not be a long drawn out process to finish.  A perfect wall handing, as I switch mine out about every month or so. 
 I did some cutting.  Some of these little 4 inch finished blocks required me to dig around for my set of EZ Recs and Tri Rulers.  Tools can make a big difference. 
 So we have three rows done and one on its way.  Almost half done, so I'm calling it a finish for this week so I am linking up with:

  1. I saw Gonzo in the title and immediately thought of the Muppet. (smiling) It is a fun design and the fabrics you've put together look fantastic. I look forward to seeing more of this one.

  2. So please tell me that the pineapple pink and white is actually printed on the fabric! These look great. I especially like the half rectangle blocks. Enjoy your next rows.

  3. Love Allison Glass prints. I had my hand on a fat quarter stack during a shop hop but it was out of my price range, gulp. How nice that you found the right pattern for these pretty prints.
