Did anyone have a bet on how long it would be before I started a new project? I had to squeeze one in. I pressed a whole stack of orange batiks to get them ready to cut about a week ago. I couldn't wait any longer so I cut 2.5" strips and I'm starting my orange quilt. I want to do a series of one color quilts and did the yellow one a couple years ago. This one will be 16 patches and a few plain squares from one of the larger patterned batiks. I also cut some 1.5" strips so there may be a few mini 16 patches thrown in too. The design will develop as I work on it.
While I'm at it I cut a second strip to cut squares and rectangles for my trays. This is the first group of 16 that I cut. I laid them out like a colorwash and like it so well I might have to sew a couple blocks like this.
