Yesterday and today I got to do something I haven’t done in a long time, play with the book’s techniques and not have a final plan. That’s right, just my design wall and I had a date.
One block has a load of possibilities.
This block is the one I made for Psychedelic Baby and had some leftovers. This design could go zig-zag or create the rectangles found in Quilting Modern’s Blind Copilot.
How about an hour glass?
Still obsessing a bit over the diamonds.
Then there are these string blocks, going to ‘magic number’ these with some wonky stars, something I’ve always wanted to put in a quilt. I like the subtle color, but am thinking grass green would give it some pow factor.
More leftovers. I could zig-zag or rectangle. They need some added color though and aren’t really on the list.
These scrappy bit beauties are what is really holding my focus though. I’m thinking of introducing them into a design layout we gave another quilt in the book or maybe it needs something new.
Fun to play isn’t it? Especially when one doesn’t have to focus on one project, just sew and see what happens.
Wish I had weeks of it.
