Playing in EQ

This is the quilt I almost started a couple nights ago … before I realized that if I ever wanted to make half the quilts I had ideas for that I was going to have to cut back on some of the donation tops I accepted. So instead, I’ve been piecing backs, binding, and quilting …. but soon I’ll have more time for piecing.

I plan to use my Accuquilt GO to make this one — the bricks are 3.5×6.5 (with seam allowances) and the framing strips are 1.5 inches finished. I’ll play some with the borders once I actually make the quilt because I’ll probably use leftover bricks and cut them in half … which of course will keep them from being exactly square….or maybe not, I forgot I had the 3 inch finished square die just recently purchased but not yet used.

    Ooh, I like those colors together. Very lush and forest-y looking. A refreshing project for you to work on during the Summer heat.

    Oh, Mary, I LOVE this one! I think it would be smashing in any kind of two-color scheme like you have here, but the greens and browns are wonderful. I might have to make these for my “boys”.

    I like the color combination. I think I would like it better if the lattice in the outer border were a bit wider to offset the squares from the rectangles.

    That is REALLY going to be pretty..and I have the same problem myself (starting something when I intended to do something else! LOL). Hey, I’m going to be in Mpls the first weekend in Sept. Anything quilty going on then that you know about?

    Mary, please tell me which die you will use w/your accuquilt. I’m about to order one and I know I’ll order the 2 1/2″ strip, the 12 1/2″ block but I’d like to make this quilt, so which ones do I need? Thanks, Hilary
