I know Fridays are supposed to be for finishes, but I didn't make that rule, so this week instead of finishing something I went ahead and started something new:
I have no real plan for this quilt right now except to make it colorful, use up some scraps, and have some fun with it. There are three rounds here right now-- a first round with a pale yellow border and squares at the corners, a round of quarter square triangles, and a plain border of a black and white print just to break it up a small bit. It measures 24-1/2 inches square right now.
I'm not too sure how I feel about the rounds so far. I feel like the first round should have been non-pieced in order to make the quarter squares stand out a little more. I made the interior quarters of the squares all out of a (different) black and white print, but I think that gets lost a bit. Maybe I'll try changing the first round, or maybe I'll just leave it until I've finished a few more rounds.
Speaking of which, what should I do for the next round? Flying geese? Birds in the air? Teeny half-square triangles? The good part is that there is no way I can fail at this, so it will just be fun. If you look at antique medallion quilts, they're all over the place in terms of rounds and spacing and blank space, so there really are no rules.
And here's the picture from our weekend:
This was a waterfall near the Delaware Water Gap in Pennsylvania. It was a very overcast day, but we hiked up anyway and it turned out to be great. We had a wonderful time!
Hope you all have a great weekend. If it doesn't rain, there is more yardwork in my future. All the vegetables are out, but the flowers still need to be cleaned up, and everything else too. I'm finding myself somewhat anxious for the first frost--to kill off the bugs! Know what I mean?
(I updated this post Friday morning to add in better photos.)
