Here is what I started yesterday.
This is just pulled from scraps and will be used in a fun project inspired by a quilt made by a swap of bee friends and which can be seen here. I hope this link works as I have not done this before.
That quilt was inspired by this pattern.
I love this pattern but also love the idea of making things my own so I decided to just make blocks whenever I want to either as test blocks or just cause I feel like it, and hope I can turn them into something fun at the end. Here are a few more I made this week. The stars are from a tutorial on Bee In the Bonnet's blog and the circle is a color reject from a patten I am testing for my son. I trying to make the blocks in increments of 3 inch units so that I can fit them all together in the end. The stars finish at 6" but that circle is a 7" finish so it will need some tweaking if it is to be used.
And finally another block from the Aiming For Accuracy Quilt Along.
It is really fun using these modern fabrics in such traditional blocks and I am really trying to let myself go when selecting fabrics for this new project. Thanks for all the inspiration out there in blogland. :)
