I’ve been researching a quilt-as-you-go method called Fun and Done. Like it. I don’t have the tool, which is a set of templates, a square that nests in a frame, but have managed a reasonable facsimile with just a ruler. I really feel the best way to learn something is to do it, so I had a rummage in my scraps and came up with this combo:
I pinned a quilt on Pinterest the other day, saying how I love B&W and brights so this fits perfectly. I won’t say too much about it because I don’t know if a certain someone might be reading. I WILL say that the backing is pink flannel (which is why it’s fraying a bit) and that I only had a VERY limited amount of the B&W swirl and the tiny green dotty material. My design choices were dictated my the amounts. I haven’t yet sewn down the backing (just folded over and pinned) but I am liking it so far. I def. learned a few things even from making the first block.
I have another row almost ready to add so the overall pattern will be more like this:
but I may play around with the placement before I decide finally.
The turnaround time on this is VERY FAST. I’ll share more when it’s done.
It’s so bright and cheerful it makes me smile….
