I've started my next quilt - this time it's a lap quilt.
The first step was to cut 17 background squares. I used 2 quite busy fabrics. I have a feeling this quilt will be quite lively.
I've sorted and arranged different fabric scraps and I think I've narrowed it down to the final colors. This quilt is from a book and I want to keep the same feel as the original quilt - an antique reproduction. I wanted the quilt to be mostly red, but most of my red fabrics were rejected as being too modern looking.
A new project is always exciting and I feel energized and ready to go. Although I want to start piecing immediately I'm going to be taking it slow. I'll probably get a few more blocks done every weekend.
The next quilt post will after I hit another milestone in the construction.
