Quilts in Progress
I have started a "Solids" quilt. I'm not sure I am going to have enough scraps to complete an entire quilt. At least one large enough to cover a grown person. We'll have to see. I am working an a quilt for my youngest son and once that is complete I will have some more scraps to add to it. I have an idea what route this quilt might take, but it won't be for awhile.
The other quilt I have started is the "Up, Up and Away" quilt from Sunday Morning Quilts, pg. 132-137. This is the one that uses all your triangle ends.
I am using 3" squares instead of 2 1/2" squares so my quilt should end up a little larger than Amanda Jean's. We'll see how many scraps I really have. I have 54 blocks assembled above in the pic and you need 589. That means I'm about a tenth of the way there. Right now I am cutting out white squares and sewing more triangles to them before I do any more assembly.
This will be the 4th quilt pattern that I've made from this book. And I have one more in mind in the blues category that I haven't yet started. Most of the fabric for this idea is packed away. So I'll just have to let it mull over and keep working on my other projects.
