I received a very large box of fabric this past Thursday - ahh!! Exciting! I think you all know the feeling. :) I wanted to start working with it right away, but we had visitors stay with us over the weekend, so I didn't get to do anything until today. It was so hard to wait!! Lol.
I have quite a few WIPs going on right now, so I didn't really need to start anything new.. but the lure of new fabrics sucked me in! I sewed some improvisationalish blocks today. My plan was that I knew I wanted to use the new fabric, and I wanted it to be a rectangular "half log cabin". I'm sure this block exists, and has a real name, but I don't know what it is, so I'm going with half a log cabin. I sewed four blocks, without measuring the strips. The only thing I know for sure is that I'll have 24 blocks measuring 12"x16", to make a quilt that is 64"x72".
I started to realize that I accidentally created a color scheme that I really liked! The first two blocks shown above have purple, orange, grey and an aqua color.
I can't decide if I should go for a scrappy look, and use all the fabrics, including my stash - or go with a dedicated color scheme. I pulled some fabrics and I think they look really good together, but I really love the scrappy look as well!
Decisions, decisions.. :)
