So, my brain finally came out of the "I love this fabric" induced stupor and I was able to successfully sew a load of half-square triangles.
I've made 80 of these so far. Though I have more to make, I like to break up the process. Plus it's fun to start to see what a quilt might look like.
Here is what I have so far.
It started out to be a Streak of Lightning pattern, but then I found the Zig Zag quilt tutorial at Purl Bee. They both end up looking the same, but the Purl version is simpler. I haven't cut the white strips that will eventually go between each Zig Zag, but you get the idea.
There are a bunch of different fabric collections in these Zig Zags, Swell, Amy Butler dots, Olivia, Kona solids, Denyse Schmidt Katie Jump Rope...I'm wondering how it all looks together and whether the red and blue zig zags are the best combination. What do you all think? Maybe I should do two quilts...one of the red and one of the blue? Maybe I should combine them with different colors??? Would love to hear your opinions!
As a side note...I had to go and clean out my car this morning...you know, collect my personal effects. My car was TOTALED, no chance for repair. It was the first time seeing the damage from the accident. I love that car even more now that I know how it protected Jon. I didn't bring the camera. I should have because that car has been my friend for many years. It had almost 200,000 miles on it and drove like a dream. It fit me like a glove and never gave me an ounce of trouble. We've been through a lot together, been a lot of places. OK, I know...this is getting silly. Bye RAVVY!
