What Are You Working On Now?   General Discussion

I will have to say after all the work you are putting into piecing this your quilting needs to be a labor of love as well. With your new sit down quilt machine you should be able to tackle that slowly and come up with a plan. I would check Pinterest and Instagram for Dear Jane quilts for inspiration............there are a lot out there to look at.

I'm using white novelties for the white side - those don't get used very often in my quilts so it was nice to pull them out.  I figured out how to cut the blocks to minimize the waste - 7.75 x 11.5 only leaves a small odd shaped piece left over.  I used freezer paper and arranged them - kind of like the kids game with blocks to make a shape.  I was able to stack the fabrics and cut 4 at a time, it went very fast.  I think it took as long to refold and put the fabrics away.  Now I need to go through and pull the colored set.    The idea I saw on FB used prints on both sides (see below) - I think as long as I focus on good contrast it will work with the novelties.  I need to use small scatter prints as much as possible so they read more like a solid.  This is going to be one of those I spy where I won't really know how well the pattern will work until I try it.  Using white solid would have been safer but I really wanted to use some of those white novelties I've saved.

One rick rack block.

several.  Trying to stick with small scatter prints that read somewhat like a TOT.

thanks.  If you have oranges & reds left over from your log cabin strings you could give this one a try, it would look really pretty in a collection of fiery colors
