I have the second to last “should” quilt up on the design board. Boy, is this one going to be bright.
I am converting a pile of 2 x 7 inch strips into a quilt, throwing in a few meters of a bright yellow solid as the background fabric. I know this sounds like a disaster in the making, but it’s for Daughter #2, for whom nothing can ever be too bright. Instead, she calls it “happy”.
Cutting the strips was done earlier in the year, and now the challenge is to convert them into something other than a straight coin quilt.
For the first row I constructed rainbow stacks, separated by two inch strips of yellow.
Next up, I am repeating the method I used a few years ago to construct a postage stamp quilt, ala Red Pepper Quilts tutorial. I am using only blue, orange and low volume strips in this row. Some order amongst the chaos is called for.
I’m not going to sew the rows together until the end, as I want to play around a bit with this quilt. Meanwhile I am having fun looking at ideas of what I can create from the strips. Any ideas would be gratefully received.
Now it’s off to the dentist. No worries though, since my dentist believes in giving you all the painkillers you need to avoid feeling anything! The down side is it takes hours for the effect to wear off, so I won’t be having a cup of tea for quite a few hours. Or food.
Have a great week, I’m enjoying seeing the blossoms, on this first day of Spring.
Linking up with Sew Fresh Quilts.
