I started a scrappy trip along precisely to have a go-to between other projects- especially a go to that is simple (I’m using Bonnie at Quiltville’s excellent tutorial, the only difference is my strips are 2″ wide, because I had a ton already cut that size). So, I’m between projects right now… and I got it back out last week.
I’m up to 36 blocks now. Not bad for a project I barely touch. I’m pretty certain that this barn raising style layout will be my final choice. This one is ALSO destined for our bed, so I need it to be 10×10 blocks to get it to size.
By the end of this year, I’d like to have 3 new quilts for our bed. My goal was always to have 4 to rotate between (seasonally?), and we were at 3. But then there was the great bleach incident that is too painful to talk about, and we were back to 2. I love them both, but I get bored. One is also a wee bit narrower than I would like- I so wish I’d added ANOTHER extra row when I made it. You can check it out on my old blog. No wonder I’m bored with my bed quilts- looks like they both date back to 2007! When this one is done, I will have a total of 5 to choose from. The 2 current options, the modern cross that’s being quilted right now, the city sampler, and then this. Not too shabby!
