I'm working on a quilt, finally! I started this in August and haven't gotten back to it till just recently. I forgot how relaxing just feeding the fabric through the sewing machine can be.
This quilt started out as selected charm squares from two different packs. I pieced them into quarter square triangle squares and squared them to four inches. Since I want a quilt bigger than a wallhanging I'm using them as centers for nine patches.
My current favorite fabrics are very light colored busy prints. I like using them as the background fabric. In this case I'm using them as the medium fabric. When I unfold the finished nine patch to iron it I like to see what color/texture combination have come up with.
Sometimes the result is high contrast, sometimes low contrast. But so far, they have all been interesting.
I have 37 of 90 blocks done so far. Just enough to see how my plan will work out.
It's going to have a very subtle background with the charm squares making splashes of color. My final decision (luckily, months away) will be if all the triangles should line up, alternate or be random. Right now, I'm leaning towards random.
