So last week I was finally ready to get the sewing machine humming again but what to do? I know I have a big pile of tops waiting to be basted and quilted but I couldn't face that.
Sitting staring at me was my stack of Anna Marie Horners Innocent Crush, so I decided to start cutting into that. I didn't really have a plan, I just started making nine patches out of them.
When I had a load of them, I dithered a bit then went for the square in square look. I then had 22 blocks, but they weren't really big enough as they stood, so I sashed around then with one of the fabrics from the nine patch.
It all seemed lovely but a bit full on. It needed a bit of calming down and I when through my stash for something to sash them with and found this dark red. It worked perfectly and came out 47x59 inches with 2 patches left over to go on the back.
How good are you at planning a quilt, or do you make it up as you go along?
