A New One


Here is the beginning of the quilt from the fabric we bought in Grand Forks. It's so much fun working with 20 different fat quarters. It's easy to avoid having two colors touching when there are so many colors. Only two of the blocks are sewn together but I wanted to see how they would look. I need to make a lot more of them. They finish at 7.5 inches so it takes quite a few to make a full sized quilt.
I am getting very eager to start on the star blocks to see how they look but I think it will be better to finish these ones first.

I always lay things out at the first moment possible too, it's just irresistible. I love seeing an overall design come together, like with your chains. Enjoy!
