Now it's only taken 13 days (too many) but look who's come home to Mummy! Yeh....
So what do I do? What will I sew? I mean, I've been cutting out so much for different quilts and not really getting anywhere.
I find another quilt that I have been cutting out fabrics for that I didn't mention in a previous post. For this quilt though I need to make some half square triangles for it do even make the blocks so I do that...
And then I make up a few quilt blocks:
A simple nine patch. I came across this block on Keryn Emmerson's blog and she was kind enough to send me a copy of her instructions of her Half and Half quilt as featured in Australian Homespun magazine. Thanks Keryn!!
Now let's play around with it:
Let's put four of them together as Keryn did for her quilt and it looks like this.
Now we'll change the combination so it looks like this: I like how this block appears framed. Very effective.
Now we'll flip the lights and darks and we get this block. I like this too, but I think if we combine the last two blocks it would be another great quilt.
Let's have a go:
Now couldn't you imagine these two blocks alternating in a quilt? That would be pretty effective.
Now as Maria has already mentioned in the comments section (before I could even finish this particular post and manage to 'tweek' the layout so I liked it) I should just do one quilt at a time - posted three other quilts that I'm cutting out for remember?
Good advice but I do like chaos. Thanks Maria!
