Once I laid it all out, it didn't look big enough. I know, that sounds ridiculous. But my family isn't content with "lap quilts." They prefer ones that can completely envelop them. If my husband is going to use this quilt, it had better be bigger. So I'm thinking I need to make it 8X9, which means 30 more blocks. Thankfully, I've still got plenty of strips cut, so I'll keep going on that this week.
It's good fun, making these blocks. I'm going to gut my stash and make another. Like I've said before, I'd rather move flimsies than fabric. If you're still holding out on starting one of these, I won't give you the link to the tutorial. Or a link to a flickr group of others who don't have your fortitude. They sure do have some pretty quilts though. But don't go and be inspired.
We leave for spring break trip in a week, so I've got to get my stuff done before I have to get laundry and packing done.
Here's my list for this week:
- Sew 30 more scrappy London trip blocks
- Trim all HSTs blocks for Hello Sunshine quilt
- Cut strips for another trippy quilt
Could you just die? I'm totally in love. This is one that will sit and get stared out for a bit before I cut in to it.
