Well, phooey! I abandoned the idea of a strip quilt when I just couldn't force myself to like the blocks I had made last week. I had a stacked coin quilt on my list of things to do so my first intent was to use these blocks and cut them in half so I'd have lots of coins. But I still didn't really like the layout and the fabrics together, so I pretty much started from scratch to make the coin stacks. I had cut up some of my favorite fabrics, though and I really hated to waste them, so I've been unpicking seams to salvage them. I knew I wanted it to be bright and I'm really starting to learn that I completely suck at randomness. I'm too orderly to be able to do it well, so instead of fighting it, I've decided to run with it. You should see my craft room, though! It really looks like a small bomb went off up there, I'll be hours straightening it all up and I now need another box for scraps. My original box overfloweth. I'm not THAT orderly!
I had a helper- MURPHY!!!!!
So this is where I stand as of today. I'll be using white sashing. I still want to make a quilt like the quilt-along with Old Red Barn Co, but that will have to wait until I find a place that has 12 fabrics that actually GO together, or I make a decision and order it all online. I'm tempted to use Tula Pink's Neptune fabrics for this quilt along, but can't decide what color to do. I should do it, though- her colorways would look great in our LR.
