It's been good to get back in the quilting room and make some blocks! I'm working through my stash one inch at a time.
A one inch strip is all I need to make these little cuties. Sometimes I don't try to make the block really "match". This one is quite random and I like the effect.
I start with a pretty center, pair it with some matching strips, and work my way around. Stitch, trim, stitch, trim and round and round I go. The strips in this block all match, and I really like this one too.
This quilt is going to be a collage of every color of the rainbow. I've also included plaids, polka dots, checks and stripes. It all works and the blocks are so much fun to make. Three hundred more and I'm done!
Did I really say that? Well it depends on how large this quilt is going to be. Do I hear throw size would be nice? But, I can just picture this as a large quilt on a bed at the cabin. It would be so colorful, cozy. and really unique. I think I should just plan on this one taking a fair bit of time, and just keep plugging away on it, a block here and a block there.
I'm debating whether or not to sew the blocks together as I go. Right now about half of them are sewn together. I'm so random in my fabric selections that I don't have to worry too much about the same fabrics next to each other. It is going to take quite awhile to stitch them together, and I really don't want to face that monumental task at the end. So I guess I talked myself into sewing them on as I go. At least that way I'll have a better idea when it comes to the size of the quilt.
Tackle each big job just one step at a time, and it will get finished.......eventually. Now about our garage cleaning.........
P.S. Canine Chronicle Update
Mazey's weight has doubled since we got her just a few weeks ago. I love the markings at the top and the sides of her eyes. She has a little Court Jester look to her doesn't she? Boy is she a jokester and is so entertaining.
What a comedienne! She is still uncoordinated at times and rolls around like the little pudge ball she is. When we take her on her daily walks, she makes so many friends along the way, both furry and human. Neighbors come out of their houses to meet and pet her. Mr. Joe decided that she is a real "chick magnet". Everyone loves her....but we love her the most.
