In interest of me doing what I want, when I want, whatever project I want - I dug out another one. My Brit Bee blocks from round 2. They have been languishing in a box for a while now. Mostly because I loved my idea but never thought it through properly.
I sent out Kona Coal and lots of different yellow, orange, pink and red fabrics from my stash. I asked for a star block or two. That was the only guidance. I said size didn't matter. Therein lay the problem. I ended up with all these amazing blocks and they were so very many different sizes I kind of hit the creative wall as I thought about how to put them together. So I put them aside and there they stayed, until yesterday.
I spread them out on the floor and stuck a post it note on each one with it's size to help me plan layout possibilities. I moved them about, made a few more small/tiny blocks and I went for it. I pieced them into a top.
It was far easier than I thought it would be. There are only two changes I would make if I had to take it apart and do it again. Obviously that is not going to happen so I'm going to go with the fact that I am very, very happy with how this is looking. It measures up about 66" square. I have no backing fabric and I have no idea how to quilt it, but I am so damn happy that it is all together in a quilt top I can barely contain myself.
This Do My Own Stuff September thing is working well for my inspiration, and my let's get things done burst of energy. Wonder what I will dig out tomorrow?
