This morning I decided to lay the blocks on my design bed, so I could move them around into a pleasing pattern. John happened by the bedroom door and peeked in and said something like “oh”. So I looked at it closer. And went on with my sorting.
I went upstairs and sewed another row together and then… well then I decided to start over again. I was making this for our bed, and if he doesn’t really like it, and I’m not 100% sure about it myself, why keep going.
It was made from scraps, so there are a LOT of colors in it. I think that grouping similar colors together might work a little better… maybe too many colors isn’t the thing. Or not enough contrast in the colors.
So I’m going to sort my 131 blocks into groups and make a few smaller quilts. Interestingly I have enough blocks with purple in them to make a twin quilt, and that will be what I’m working on first!
