I got my last two blocks made!
As I was laying out the blocks and starting to sew some of them together, I thought....
|Considering my goal is to make quilts for all of my family and several of them want purple quilts.....|
|Instead of sewing 20 together, I could sew 12 together and make 4 more blocks, and then I could have two lap quilts!|
|Four blocks doesn't sound like much, right? Well there are 16 half square triangles (HSTs) in each block and so I have 64 HSTs ready to press open and trim!!|
|Not sure what the R and L mean (right or left handed?) Anyway, I tried that method out for the last two blocks and found it to be pretty good and time saving!|
I may group the 12 blocks into warmer and cooler purple groups that could possibly look similar to these layouts...
|I decided against sashing, as nothing was looking good in the audition-- maybe because I have too many different gray backgrounds.|
I'm linking photos up in the Material Girl Layer Cake Quilt Along Flickr group. There are some breath taking quilts in all sorts of colors and patterns to see!
