I have so many different projects on the go but I can never resist starting another one!! I had to buy some of Riley Blake’s gorgeous Rainy Days fabric when I saw it…..I just love those umbrellas. It has been in my stash for about a month and I have had it out several times to stare at it and ponder on what kind of quilt I could make.
Last week I finally worked out what I wanted to do when I read CluckCluckSew’s tutorial for a road trip quilt.
The quilt in question is just lap quilt sized so I am going to make mine bigger but using her pattern.
I have been busy cutting lots of 4×9, 4×6, and 4×4.5 blocks:
I have spent a couple of evenings laying them all out on the floor working out a good layout – my husband thinks I’m slightly odd particularly when I spent about an hour the other night just staring at pieces of fabric spread all over the floor.
I’m still working on the layout but I’m sure that I will be happy with it soon…….. I just need to get past that hypnotic effect that makes my eyes go all spinny…….we’re like Mowgli and the snake in the jungle book!!!!
