My plan on this project is to keep making blocks as long as I enjoy doing so, then put them together and call it done. I definitely do not plan to make enough blocks to cover a bed. I'm hoping for a throw or good-sized wall hanging.
Yesterday I decided it was time to look at all my blocks up on the wall together, something I haven't done for several months. Most of the other members of our group are using Kaffe fabrics and similar prints, but I don't have a big collection of Kaffe prints and have been mostly using older fabrics. It was time to see how it's all coming together.
I don't hate it, but I don't love it either. There are a couple of pale blocks that really jump out at me, and a couple with deep blue around the outside seem awfully dark. There are currently close to 70 blocks up on the wall. I will keep going for now and decide which blocks will make the cut when I'm ready to join them together.
I am linking up to Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times, Monday Making at Love Laugh Quilt, and Moving It Forward at Em's Scrapbag. Check out all of them for tons of amazing quilting inspiration!
