I decided to start working on my solids quilt. Inspired by this one. I first went with wonky. Can I just say how much my brain hates this! I love the way they look. But I don't enjoy creating them. I'll just have to admire the wonky quilts that other people make. I cut a bunch of odd sized strips and blocks and here's what I came up with. It's wrinkled because it now lives in the scrap bag along with the strips and blocks.
I'm glad I didn't cut all my fabric this way. I cut the rest with nice , even sized, measured strips and blocks. I love symmetry.
I have to draw out my quilts, even just a little, before I start. I can't stand the thought of wasting fabric and spending precious time on something I won't like.
I love these blocks. I have 9 made and I plan on making 80 total. They measure 10 inches. Now the strips are random sizes but they are even. I am having so much fun picking colors for each block. It's total stress free sewing. That's what counts, right?
