Beginnings of a Quilt
I started preparations to make this quilt a little while ago and I have been spending little bits of time here and there cutting the fabric into 4.5" & 2.5" strips and then subcutting them into squares and also cutting light and dark 1.5" strips. I originally saw this quilt on Lori from Humble Quilts blog and she very generously provided an EQ drawing that gave the details for the block construction. As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to make one - I just loved the one she made!
I have since started sewing the 1.5" strips together - light and dark - and then started subcutting them. I was planning on sewing the little 4 patches as a leader/ender project but now I am just not sure. Maybe this will be a main project and I can start another one as the leader/ender? For now I will just continue sewing the 1.5" strips together and cutting them into 2sies until I decide what my next step will be.
