I love clicking through the Swoon group to see all the wonderful blocks. I don't think any 2 are alike yet. It is amazing how just a simple change up of fabric can totally change the tone of a quilt block. I choose to use Lotta Jansdotter's Echo for most of my blocks...but after I finished #3 I knew that if I was going to finish this project i was going to have to add some other fabric to it. I just so happened to have a stack of my Map fabric (I printed it out with Spoon Flower months ago) on my cutting table and something about the tones really appealed to me with the simplicity of the Echo fabric.
This map is from one of the drop zones at Ft Bragg. The other map that is in this quilt is a training map from Hohenfels, Germany. I bet you guessed already, but this quilt is for my dear husband. He helped me make the fabric from all his old maps, and I think it is pretty manly. It does have some pink....but my husband likes pink things from time to time.
I do have most of this fabric available for sale on my spoonflower if you are interested. I had some requests to make it available. Just don't rely on the maps to be accurate. They are all outdated and I would hate for you to get lost.
