My picture of the Day #41 is what I’m working on today (in my spare time).
Actually I have 6 videos that have to be filmed today!! So, I can edit tomorrow …. but the noise outside is hindering me from recording. I love my neighborhood, and we choose it for the people …. but, on days like today, I say I want to move!!!
Back to the darling fabric …. I am making another Log Cabin Quilt …. (my way) except this time … I’m going to try to not place the fabric where I want it … just a hodgepodge of strips.
I am afraid I may not like it but I need to see how it looks with careful planning verses not careful planning.
The reason is …. when I was looking for new fabric for the Quilt Along … I found very few that would work like the Ambleside Fabric … or maybe I didn’t look hard enough. With the Ambleside …. I had four color blocks (pink, blue, green, gray) … and each used 8 patterns of fabric. 8 x 4 = 32 strips … LOL Now look at the fabric above …. it can’t be done. There isn’t 8 fabrics of blue or 8 fabrics of gold/yellow … hence the reason why I’m going hodgepodge.
After typing all that … you see why I don’t sleep much … I over think just about everything. I’m not complaining …. I tell my kids it’s worked in my benefit (I think).
Here’s some more math for ya …. I’m using the entire jelly roll this time!
- 5″ Blocks – 24 – vanilla charm pack
- 2-1/2 x 7 – 48
- 2-1/2 x 9 – 48
- 2-1/2 x 11 – 48
- 2-1/2 x 13 – 24
- + sashing – Vanilla jelly roll
Gotta run … have a good day!
