As you can see, this quilt is all batiks. The instructions were to not worry about what fabric was put next to what fabric. Now, I am trying. I cannot in good conscience put the same fabric next to each other. That just begs the question, "Why did you cut this fabric into two pieces?" Beyond that, I am REALLY trying to ignore what goes next to what. It is very much like the scrap quilts that you make by pulling the strips or pieces out of a paper bag. I can't do that, either. OK, I have a slight control freak issue here. Yes, it shows up in my quilts as well.
You can see the completed block at the top. That is not at all a clue to what the quilt will look like. I will share as I continue on this journey to completion so you, too, can be surprised. In the meantime, I will be putting together lots of pieces.
Have you found your two Charm Packs to use for "Play Time?" If so, please take them apart and separate them loosely into "dark" and "light" piles. You will be making a "light" grid of 5 squares by 5 squares with a matching grid of "dark" squares.
Just play with them for now as you decide which is light and which is dark. Your "Play Time" will not look like mine. Yours will look like Yours. Here is mine completed so you know where we are going.
