A few weeks ago I just couldn't fine any Quilty Motivation. I sometimes find, that if I actually go and do something the motivation starts to creep back in. Every once and in awhile it actually returns with a vengeance, exploding full of ideas. It was more of a slow go this time.
So...I started by cutting strips....and cutting more strips!!! I do have a tendency to carried away.
I have four favorite "go to sizes". They are 4.5", 2.5", 2" and 1.25". These are the sizes I use for joining blocks (narrow and wide joining strips). I also use the 2.5" for binding. Plus these sizes give me plenty of variety to play with.
I also threw in some fairly large prints from my stash, that for some reason I have been hesitant to use.
After a week or so of cutting strips.....I just started to play.
At some point it almost feels like the quilt starts talking to me. Let's hope I can hear what it's saying. Do your quilts talk to you???
