Oops – Fun and Done trial

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….
