9-patches week 7

9-patches week 7
Well, I thought about it and thought about it and couldn't resist. I'm going to make another 9-patch quilt, this time with 48 blocks. It will end up about 55" x 75" (I did the math but now I can't remember for sure) and I'm still going to do the borders like Amanda Jean's original one-a-day quiltalong. This time I'm going to try for fewer pastels, fewer pinks, oranges, and yellows all together. I think I won't use any browns in this quilt, either. I wonder if I could make it kind of rainbow-y? I will need more real blues, and true greens, too. Oh yeah, and purple.

I'm going to do 8 blocks a week and will have enough blocks for this quilt in 6 weeks. Anyone care to join me?

Sounds like fun. I'm going to take a look at my resources to see if I can have something that would work. I'm not a scrappy person, so I always have such a struggle when attempting anything scrappy. lol

Now there's a workable plan... 8 blocks a week sounds manageable. Love the scrappy look... you just never know what's in that stash that will combine well with its neighbors.

Oooh I will but I will be late after the holidays.

Sounds fun, but my plate is full.

You're welcome to come raid my stash. I can help you on those colors you're needing. My scrap bin overflows and most of the scraps aren't tiny.

Maybe after the holiday excitement passes, you can come by for a bit! Would be fun!
