This week I’ve been playing some more, this time with colors. I have three projects in mind. So it’s time to select some colors to work with, my favorite part of the quilt making process.
After several years of buying lots of precuts online, I’m now trying to find ways to use these as well as yardage. I have all my charm squares sorted by color. I have a much larger number of red squares than any other. So I decided to use them and the first thing that came to mind was red, white and blue.
To make the charms more useable, I pieced them into strips of four and added a half charm to each strip, then paired them with dark blues.
I’m thinking that these could be made up into a lap quilt. Will have to work with added whites and maybe a panel for a Quilt of Valor.
This next group of fat quarters has been hiding on the back of a shelf. It would be fun to make something in gradations.
Finally,I am thinking about a challenge wall hanging and using contrast to set a mood.
Does this look mysterious to you? Perhaps I’ll use fusing to construct this one.
Anyway, I’ve definitely got plenty to work on for awhile. I will keep you updated. This lovely cool weather is really invigorating. Hoping to see fall colors once we get some frost around here, which could be this week.
Meanwhile, I’m going to be checking out all the Quilting progress and
