I have been in quite a quilting mood lately, but am leaving for a visit to Chicago. I’ll be taking knitting because I find it much more portable. But I am hoping to keep the quilting juices flowing for when I return. So I planned a simple project and put it on the design wall.
These are the pieces left over from the golf quilt. Now I could cut them into smaller squares and put them in my scrap collection. But since they are themed, could I do something as is? Maybe with filler blocks from the other colors I had used? Out with the graph paper, and I am thinking 44 x 44 lap quilt thoughts.
And suddenly it seems the shapes can stand alone without filler blocks. Now to test with fabric.
It’s not that I couldn’t cut the large pieces up; it is just that I rathr like them this way. And pieced blocks between would just muddle it. So I am thinking blue, a rather light blue for the empty space.
That will be on the design wall when I return, and I think it will make it easy to get back into quilting mode.
