How many charm squares does it take to make a double bed quilt?
If I were the clever, thrifty, think-ahead type I would know the answer to this question.
I am making this one up as I go along and not the least fussed about numbers :)
I have been quite smitten for a while now with yellow and grey fabric and quilts.
I've had this fabric stashed since early in the year, and am thrilled to finally have
time to work on it.
I have been playing with block layouts and will be going with these two.
I nearly have all my initial half-square triangle blocks finished, so should be able to start piecing the bigger blocks together this weekend.
I am not now so convinced, I might add, about the solid grey I have chosen,
(it looked so 'warm' in the shop...while the paler grey looked washed out...)
But it is too late now!
I have been thinking about some quilting techniques that may make the grey retreat and help the yellows to pop. We'll see.
It's so nice to get back to some big quilt making - I've missed working on large patchwork projects while I've been at TAFE.
Have a lovely weekend everyone
