No, I don't have a design wall. And truth be told, I don't even have a stash :D That's all my designer fabric stash :D
Anyway, last week I decided to cut my Echino scraps. I use Echino for MeiTais (if you're new to babywearing or know nothing about, you must check thebabywearer. Or go visit my romanian site and understand nothing :)) ) and I had very few scraps that I kept safely for a quilt :).
I started with this quilt in my mind. It was another immage but I seem to foget to bookmark a lot these days :D.
First of all I must say that in a very mysterious way I decided I need 13" blocks. Really, I have no.ideea.at.all how did I get to that 13.
Anyway, I than decided I don't want to chop my scraps too much, like I needed for that kind of pattern, so I decided to make 6,5" squares. Ha! 6,5" suck. Really :) They looked horrible. And 4 squares block?
Ok, maybe 2 squares in solid and 2 in print?
Maybe 4 squares block on the middle and than 2 squares block on the sides?
Neah, not now
Later on I realised I must use that linen so I decided to cut the squares in two rectangles (3,25" yes?) and make a quilt in the same pattern and style as Rita's chaos quilt.
Layed everything down and ... hmmm ... let's just say ...
Finnaly, the block. The good one. Did you folow? I said 3 1/4" x 6 1/2" rectangles. What dimension is this? Anybody?
Ok, so the block. I then remebered I cried a little last week when my natural Kona arrived. And I so hated it. Not white, not gray, but a natural that doesn't fit any fabric in my stash. Until now. Mu-ha-ha :)))
The blocks sashed in natural looked unexpectedly (:P) good.
Than some border with the rest of 3 1/4" x 6 1/2" rectangles. (I like to write it down, it looks so complicated :D).
See that last strip? It was supposed to be the last...Not after this...
Anyway, I am thinking about adding more horizontal stripes. I think I will have a lot of time to think about this until my batting arives :))) And than I'll show you the quilt. Of course, after I take a deep breath and do some straight line quilting on linen...
