Quilting Along

quilt along progress

Last week's strip sets are this week's strips. Next up: piecing these together into blocks, which are likely going to be next week's project, despite being part of this week's instructions. Cutting 16 strip sets into approximately 272 (give or take a few) strips takes a bit longer to do than it does to say.

Quandary of the moment: do I put these strips together somewhat randomly or do I try to organize them into thematic blocks? I'm leaning toward the random approach since it feels a little late to be organized. There are a few highly organized strips sets in the Flickr pool (here and here), and I think those quilts are going to be amazing. But since I chose my fabrics with a "meadow of purple flowers" in mind, that's probably how I should continue. Suggestions?

  1. "Meadow of purple flowers" sounds like a gentle breeze on a sunny day . . . very inviting. Your colors are looking really good with the background fabric.
