Did I tell you that October’s precut was Fat Quarters? I had a set picked out in GA and a plan to start the quilt before I broke my ankle. The plan for the 2 weeks at home was to quilt 5 or 6 tops … but plans changed. I will be working on not 1 but 2 fat quarter quilts and I’m going to try to quilt 2 small Strippie quilts.
I love Plus quilts and have been planning to do another one for a while so after considering some different options, I decided on a positive/negative Plus version. After making my first group of blocks I realized that I didn’t like the print blocks combined with the tone on tone blocks so I decided I’d make two quilts. The smaller one will be 45 x 63 and I think I have enough of the prints to make a larger version.
I’ll obviously have more variety when I get more blocks made but this is where I’m going with these.
Luckily, I have plenty of the background fabric for both quilts and the 9 inch finished blocks are quick to make.
I’ve got to run out to the dentist now to have my broken crown fixed but maybe I’ll work a little more on this tonight.
Just elevate the ankle and do what you can with one foot in the air. Hope the crown issue went well.
Looks like you will have fun with those!!
Those look like quick blocks to make so I’m sure even doing 2 quilts will go quickly. I don’t buy fat quarter bundles very often, even though I do buy a lot of random fat quarters. But last week I bought a black and white bundle. I’m not sure exactly what it will become as I contemplate ideas.
