The other night I cut all my fabric and put the fabric for the blocks onto plates to keep them straight. I think it's funny - for a scrappy quilt, this seems pretty organized...
I know scrappy quilts are supposed to be really random and stuff, but I tend to pre-select the fabric for each block to make sure that the values and scales of fabrics are spread out evenly. (I did this with Long Strange Trip too) It's not rocket science, and I'm not super fastidious about it. But I did have a little bit of a time during Sunshine Daydream, when I was trying not to repeat the same prints in different colors in the same block. That didn't work out too well. I thought it would really bother me when the quilt was done, but it doesn't in the least. And I think that quilt is my favorite of all the ones I've made at this point!
SO... I sat down with some netflix on Sunday night and cranked out a few blocks.
16 to be exact.
I did six the first night I started the quilt, just to get an idea of how it would look, so that means I only have three left! I'm stoked to get this quilt finished, it's going to be for my grandmother, who has been very ill recently.
I did some of my smallest piecing ever, the center block of this star is 1 1/2". So cute! (the measurements came out better this time!)
Signs of productivity!
