What I'm working on now...

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!

These are great colors AND I like the look of those blocks in the last photo!!

Your fabric choices kind of remind of Bonnie Hunter's Roll Roll Cotton Boll. I LOVE mine with the brown and pink!

Keep going!!
