I made six more blocks, adding the next darker set of fabrics and placing them along the left side on the design wall. The quilt is looking better with each new set of blocks. My main concern right now is that I may not have enough of the darkest multicolor prints to finish the quilt. I will continue making the rest of the current group of blocks, then see how much I can get from my darker fabrics. If possible, I would like to make one last set of blocks, then setting triangles to finish it off, all of them in my darkest prints.
Here's a closer shot giving a better view of some of my fabrics. Keep in mind that most of these fabrics are close to 20 years old. My last group of blocks will be made with prints even darker than those in the blocks on the left side.
I am linking up with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge on Saturday and at Oh Scrap! over at Quilting is more fun than Housework on Sunday. Be sure to check out all of the wonderful scrappy projects that everyone is sharing!
