I haven't decided on the layout of the blocks yet but I can see myself now making these blocks for a long time and making a few quilts (you know I have enough strips from those bags to make many quilts!) with different layouts. The lighter shirtings really are making a difference in the quilt, problem is I don't have a lot of them and shirtings are not easy to find. I hear that there a few new lines coming out soon but I am determined to use what I have for this quilt. I will be repeating the shirtings a lot and I am fine with that for this quilt the darks are going to be what you see first.
As I am working on these blocks I have been making some rail fence blocks too I will put them up on the wall next post .
I am always thinking of what I want to make next, this picture shows what I am thinking of!
Harvey by Miss Rosie quilt company . I really wanted to use a grey background and thought this Dottie, polka dots from Moda, would be the perfect choice, wasn't sure I could go really dark so I bought 3 different ones and once again I surprised myself the dark has to be the background!
