Good Monday morning!! Here it is again .... one more week has come and gone. I have another quilt started using more of the Aqua Terra fabrics from Connecting Threads.
But I didn't want to have to re-cut all the strips that I already had cut at 2.5"
So then I remembered I had seen a Missouri Star Quilt video called
Sooooo that's when I decided I'd make a Keyhole quilt with my strips.
I have 15 different fabrics and enough strips to make 45 blocks. That should make a nice size once I have a border or two added!
Each strip will yield enough pieces for one block
After all of the strips have been cut and arranged I sorted them according to...dark frame-light centers OR light frame-dark center.
<<<< Here's an example.
Then I started sewing the blocks together until I had all 45 finished.
Now comes my design wall ponderings.
This is #1
I don't think I like this one. Too boring.
Too many seams to match up.
This is better...but then I'd have to cut some of the blocks in half and move them up to the top. Not sure about this one.
This is Good! I like the assorted arrangement.
This is the one I finally chose in the end.
It looks best on my wall up close and personal.
So stay tuned and check back to see what I do with the borders on this one. And head on over to Judy's Design Wall Monday and check out some of the fantastic quilts being made.
Have a great day.
Thanks for stopping by....Linda
