Thank you to all the inspiration everywhere
on the internet that finally pushed me to
start making a mini quilt. As always, I don't
have a set of plans for this project. I am
just experimenting to see what makes me
happy as I go, and I am so far loving how it
is sort of coming together.
I started off with a bunch of 2.5" square pieces.
I cut them to make two triangles from each square
and then combined two kinds of fabric that are
contrasting to each other. I made a point to
use only 2.5" square from a single cotton print.
This way, I can use lots of different kinds of
fabric for one project and hopefully I will discover
new lovely combination that is made of fabric
that I have not used for a while or have never used
before. I am thinking that I will put this quilt up
on the wall next to my cutting table so that
it can remind me of the types of fabric I own.
I don't know how big of a quilt this is going
to be, but I am hoping that it will be about
25" x 25" or larger. It completely depends on
how far I can go with matching fabrics. Since
I do have a restriction (using one type of
fabric only once) I will come to the point
where I can't find good matches anymore
and that will be it. What a terrible plan,
I know! It very much reflects my life style.
I am pretty good at aiming short-term goals,
but setting up long-term goals (like saving
for retirement, etc.) has never been
so easy for me sadly.. Forgive me ;)
So far I have 25 blocks but many more to come.
These triangles are waiting for me to find fabric
that matches them. Wait for me guys! You'll soon
join the patchwork team!
This project is sooo much fun :D
Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day/afternoon!!
