I have now added stripes, batiks, and an alternate block. I still have many more blocks to sew. Every pair of 2" strips yields one light background block and one dark background block.I haven't decided if this alternate block is the one I will use. I'm still just playing. I don't design my quilts before I make them most of the time. I just make some blocks and start designing with them on my flannel covered design walls. I'm never sure if all of the color combinations are going to work and occasionally a few blocks get pulled and don't get used in the original quilt. I also rarely know how big I am making the quilt. I work on it until I'm bored with it and then I know the final size.
This is very multicolored right now. The really light fabrics might get pulled now that I see it in a photo. I think I want it more saturated and less contrasty. I'll make another pile of blocks and then play some more.
AND just in case you think I sew all day, I didn't even get into the studio until 7 p.m. I'm trying to tidy up the garage and put away the gardening stuff. I've also started moving furniture to do a really good vacuuming before Thanksgiving. I really do housework too. And take an afternoon nap. And read.
