I wanted to make 25 square blocks but it didn't work out so I opted for 16 patch blocks. The benefit here as I cut the strips for the squares I needed for this quilt I also cut up the rest of the strip for 2 more quilts!
It is fun being able to play with color this way, just put 2 strips together, you think oh do they really go together? or thats really bold but when you start placing the blocks together they just meld all together, I love that.
Originally I was going to make a few baby quilts to donate but I think this one needs to be a twin size quilt. I will donate it and I bet some little girl will just love it don't you?
Nothing on the cutting table this morning its all on the design wall, this is how I work on a quilt like this (a bit out of my comfort zone I have to be able to step back and look!)
I put the strips on the wall
then I start matching up strips that will work together (well at least to me they work together!) today I hope to make a lot more blocks! A little bit of spring in my sewing room.
Working with these strips I really realize the benefits of buying Moda's jelly rolls, oh having these in repro fabrics , or French General, Kansas Trouble,Primitive Gatherings, 3 Sisters, Sandy Gervais, Fig Tree, Minick and Simpson....ok you get the idea!
I think I need to do some shopping !
