Old Red Barn Co Sew-along Update
I am finally getting underway ! I have been dithering about whether to use my 15 colours, or 12. Whether to make it a big quilt, small quilt, square quilt etc etc. I have been doing math as a bedside lullaby (don't do it.. it doesn't work!) only to discover I had read the wrong end of the ruler and I have 12" blocks, not 12.5".....
So all the math was thrown out again. I then decided to put aside the two brightest colours, make it more pastel, like I intended in the first place, and go with the twice 6 colours.. like Dana proposed in the first place too! Phew.... It was a long way around but I learned a lot on the way!
This is the first sample block;
Then I chose my two groups of 6 colours each.
I hope it is even enough colourwise.. but as we are supposed to be a bit random and not overthink (overthinking definitely my strong point!!) I left it at this and we'll just have to see what happens. If it doesn't work... all part of the learning process....
Then sewn all the strips together;
Going to cut them all into blocks now and the arranging fun can start!
