The last time you saw these blocks, I was unhappy with how they were turning out…
There were technical problems and they just didn’t appeal to me as I had envisioned them. I set the whole project aside for a while…got back to it today. My original plan was to have lots of curves and perhaps some quarter circles. Not happening!
I decided to make it easy on myself and make straight cuts for a little slice and dice action. What could it hurt? I did keep my inserts at a consistent width of 2″, and that’s only because I started by using up some binding strip pieces that I had.
I’m starting to like it now.
These blocks are quite large, about 18 x 20 or so. My favorite so far is this one and if I don’t go crazy, it should trim up like this:
I still have way, way too much fabric for this one…probably enough for 2 quilts.
Perhaps that’s exactly what I should do. I love all the fabrics involved. Wow! See how quickly things go from a simple use-up-the-stash-project to now making two quilts? I must be nuts!
