Cleaning the sewing room can unearth from great finds. Maybe it’s that lost fabric or a project that you have stuffed away. Well, while I was cleaning my sewing room in February I found some gems.
My tall table housed a number of projects I had forgotten. I took the discarded half square triangles from this project and threw them into a baggy. Apparently I had pulled out the yellow, orange, green, and aqua ones for a quilt that did not happen. Well, I decided to change that.
I decided to make 16 patch blocks with the left over half square triangles. Within the blocks I didn’t want a repeat of color in the row or column. Each block was laid out before piecing to ensure I could do it. The blocks were tiny once finished.
What do to next?
It needed something more to become a quilt. There were enough blocks to put four of the blocks together to be one larger block. The effort was made to not have same prints or colors side by side. There’s one it’s not right, but it’s not an issue. Design element right?
I took these blocks to the quilt retreat, not sure the entire layout or design. I grabbed some Kona Capri solid I had in the back room just in case I could use it. It’s bright and could add an interesting color to this quilt. Why not?
Check back later this week to see the rest of the process. I’m curious to know your answer to the question below.
