I have two projects going on right now. The first is a half log cabin in fall color fabrics. (Thimbleberries/Moda) I have yet to decide on the final layout for this quilt. Keep in mind that the blocks in the picture have not been sewn. I just placed them out on the bed with the background fabric to give an idea of the look. I would certainly hope that my sewing is not this wonky. *lol*
My idea here is to make a 9 patch block using the 2.5" fabrics. Instead of using a plain or print border between the blocks, I plan on sewing together strips of 2" squares.
This will make a very scrappy quilt, a style that I love. I am hoping to make this a true charm quilt with no fabric duplicates. Unfortunately, it is likely to take me years to collect enough fabric to do this. I may end up duplicating squares just to keep it from becoming a UFO. I may also use borders around the outside to increase the size of the quilt without duplicating any fabrics.
