|In Progress, now about 20" X 38"|
My motto this year is "Use It" and I wanted to use some of my V-day fabric stash. Each year it's a different style, a different size, a different look but always...about love.
First choose some fabrics...
Second, make a few strip sets in order to cut out some 60 degree triangles...
Next sew three of the triangles together...
When I am ready, I'll sew each half to the other into strips, then strips together with long straight seams. All straight seam sewing here! Fast. I made all these since yesterday afternoon.
It's messy, and fun, and busy and colorful and happy.
I must tell you a secret.
When I made the first two blocks I thought, that's it I wasted fabris, time and now I can't let myself throw it away.
I considered doing an art quilt instead that's on the back burner of my mind.
But, I know this syndrome... I've had it with each quilt I ever made.
Just about a fourth of the way along the process I begin not to like it, growing fear that I wasted fabric and time on it, then just before it comes together in the final top I love it again!
I mean, look at these fabrics!
I do a lecture on working in series and show all 22 quilts... but if you want to see just one more...
