I started a new quilt for a birthday present and therefore I can't show too much of the progress. But since the recipient got to choose his favorite colors and gave his ok to the selected fabrics it is fine to show this much. He wants red as the predominant and yellow as the secondary color. The final result is still going to be a surprise I hope.
It will be another disappearing nine patch. But I'm going to try a few new things in terms of size of the patches and layout.
On another note: Spotted this fellow during one of my recent morning runs.
I've started to think about block layouts and to understand what overall look I want to achieve. I need to pay attention where I put the dark and the light squares within a single block. I'm totally enjoying sewing these little squares but I can see that there will be a lot of decision taking along the way. That's good food for my brain.
I have started a new project. It will be another long term english paper piecing work that I can do by hand whenever I feel like. A companion for in between times. I'm planning to use my scraps from previous projects and use the "trip around the world pattern". At least this is my current intention. But I'll be sewing squares for a while and who knows what I'll do in the end with them.
Here I'm just playing around with some potential block layouts.
