Of course, I need fabrics that I don't have. The colors need to be red, black and white. I have some of all of them, but not enough of any of them. I discovered this after I planned the quilt.
To get started I went into Electric Quilt and started playing with designs. My first design looked like this:
Take two is this quilt:
Or, I may go a little bit smaller and use option 3. The black and white fabric is not exactly what I will use if I go this way but I have a bw batik that will allow for a bit more diversity of fabrics.
Then I took the leftovers and started piecing them into larger pieces. I managed to make 5 of my ten inch squares. And there is enough left for one more.
I didn't sew the nine patches yet. Since I need more fabrics, I want to wait so that they will be nicely mixed up.
Now if I can just stay focused - I can do this!
And in case you are wondering, the quilting will be something that I can do quickly- and probably in a larger scale than the practice pieces I have been quilting.
