Here's a quick peek into what I'm currently working on.
I decided to jump in and participate in Ellison Lane's Scrappy Stash QAL!
Even though I just finished that big string quilt with all my scraps, I still had some left over! Granted, I didn't have the selection I might have liked at this point... but I still had plenty of scraps left! (i swear they multiply on their own!!)
I've changed it up a big from what Jennifer is doing... hers are monochromatic log cabins. I started out that way.. but I didn't like how "orderly" it all looked. I wanted a more scrappy look to my scrap quilt! LOL
So... all my centers are monochromatic, but then I bordered them all with another color, and voila! a scrappier looking version of the same thing! :)
The guidelines for the quilt along were 8.5" blocks - once I decided to go this route, I made all my blocks 12.5". I have 20 blocks done so far, and after laying them out last night, thinking a 4 x 5 layout would work... that puts me at 48" x 60" ... and I'm thinking I ought to make a couple more and make a 5x5 to round it out at a nice lap size of 60"x60".
It's a bit on the BRIGHT side! lol
I was thinking of just putting the blocks together like this... but perhaps a small 2" white or gray sashing might make it a little less bold?
And in other thoughts... I need to start figuring out what I can make for Christmas gifts this year!! Have you had any thoughts? Already started? Care to share? :)
