I’ve been thinking about my unfinished projects recently… again. I’ve been specifically thinking about this quilt. It’s made in a very free form way, starting with a piece of Kaffe’s sunburst fabric in the corner, and then free form pieced strips on two sides. It’s all made from Kaffe Fassett Collective scraps.
Here’s a view of some of the blocks.
I’m really close to having all the blocks done that I need for a queen size bed quilt. I think I only need to make five or six more and then I can get it on the design wall. I’m just stumped, once again, on what to do about those setting triangles.
I have posted previously about trying to decide what I was going to do for setting triangles. After experimenting with a bunch of different options, I decided to just make the same blocks but a little larger and cut them in half for the setting triangles.
And now I’ve changed my mind. Partly because I am really just wanting to be done with this and don’t want to make another 15 or so blocks. Partly because I like the effect of the setting triangles made from yardage. Partly because I want to put that bin of scraps away!
So tonight I pulled out some fabrics that are mostly shades of yellow to try out. I had an idea in my head as I started pulling fabrics and it’s in this set of photos. Here’s what I came up with.
After sending these photos to a friend tonight and a follow up phone conversation, I’ve decided on one of these — my idea that prompted this evening process. Can you guess which one it is?
I even went online and ordered the fabric tonight. So I’m definitely committed. Maybe that will prevent me from changing my mind. Ha! I kill me.
I am really looking forward to getting this thing in the done pile. It will be finished and given to my brother and his wife.
A friend of mine gave me a gift certificate to Island Quilter for taking care of her dog, Jolene, when she went on vacation earlier this fall. So tonight I went online and ordered a bunch of the new KFC collection. I exceeded the certificate she gave me, but didn’t buy the entire collection. I was amazed at my restraint. I can’t wait to see the fabrics in person. I’ve only seen a few pieces of the new collection. it’s always different to see them in person.
