Block A's are completed!
These were fun. I enjoyed the whole process and I'm going to like the results too.
I cut all the strips to the sizes needed from the various fabrics I chose as shown in previous post.
So, here is the final color combinations selected.
I didn't want to make each block individually. It makes for too much stopping and starting.
I decided to make all the row 1/5 together. That way I was able to chain sew a background piece to a colored strip 17 times before stopping to press and measure and then run the other background piece onto the 17 block pieces.
Then, I sewed all 17 of the row 2/4's
I was very happy to get a true scrappy quilt accomplished on this project. I only used a couple of fabrics a couple of times but was careful to change them from a dark value to a lighter value.
Well... do they work? What do ya think? Scrappy is harder than it seems. I'm not sure where to look for help and suggestions as to how to pick the pairs.
Anyway, I'm headed back to the sewing room to get going on the B block.
As always, I'm happy to get your comments, suggestions and encouragement. What a FUN journey!
