I started working on a quilt for my oldest son and his wife a while ago. It got put aside while I finished some other projects. I pulled it out to work on it again tonight. I have a long way to go....
I have been cutting brown strips, 2 1/2 inches wide. Here is just a sampling of the browns I have been using.
Lots of variety...... making scrappy brown 4 patch blocks.
Just a sampling in the photo below. I need 288 of these for this project. I am using both old and new fabric..... ugly and not so ugly!
After that, they get a triangle on 2 opposite corners. I just lay a 2 1/2 inch square on top, and stitch on the diagonal. I am getting lots of bonus triangles from this project.
Here they are with the triangles sewn on...
After I get these blocks done, it will be on to scrappy 4-patch blocks..... I will not be using brown in them. Mainly orange, yellow, pink and gray, with a few other random colors thrown in for variety.
I will keep you posted on my progress!
