When I made the quilt for Geoff and Kiley I referred to this great book. I remembered this is the book I learned to make these squares in shadow blocks. This book is fabulous and takes you through the steps to making a quilt. It is all pictures and many different methods and so many different squares.
Tonight I started laying the blocks out on my diningroom table. Arranging them this way and that way trying to get together a pattern using the dark and light sides of each square.
After downloading the pictures I saw I hadn't placed the blocks the right way. See the top right square of the big square in the middle? I had to turn that block to place the dark side down....
So I reorganized the squares .... replaced a few blocks...
There I think thats better. I think I'll be happy with that switch once I have all the squares sewed together.
So far the size is 28"x41". I'll trim the squares to make them all the same size. I hope to find 2 different pretty coordinating fabrics to make borders around the quilt. I don't think I would be choosing this colour scheme and fabrics if I was doing it now but I am up for the challenge to finish it up and see how I make out with it.
Do you have a project you started years ago to finish?
Hope you have fun finishing it up also.... Judi xoxo
