Still finding squirrels! I had pulled fabrics for this quilt a couple of months ago but never got anything cut, which is why it was still on the cutting table, duh.
I even labeled this photo Squirrel, which I had forgotten, ha ha. The cover quilt in the foreground of the APQ April 2017 magazine is called Cross Reference (designer Susan Ache) and my plan is to make a smaller, couch quilt size quilt. From stash I pulled blue and rusty orange mostly repro prints, and will copy the solid cream background. Our son may be moving out of a studio to a bigger apartment soon and will need a couch quilt. Well, first he will need a couch, but THEN he will need a couch quilt. Given the speed at which I finish quilts, I decided to get cutting.
Blue is a color I don't use much so will have doubles of some of these prints. I decided to make all the cut blocks before deciding which to add. I'll dig around the scrap and strip storage for any other suitable blues. The small cross blocks will be a solid blue of some shade, TBD. On Friday after work, I was able to get 60% off my 3 yard cut of Kona Snow at JoAnn's. Then I took a turn through Hobby Lobby, where they were playing the most depressing music ever and no one was smiling much, least of all the employees. I didn't buy anything.
Saturday I got the UFO of the month spray basted but couldn't find any enthusiasm to start with the quilting. I did sketch out a plan, however, and got working on that today. But more on that tomorrow when we are to show our progress on Patchwork Times. I hope no more squirrels show up in the meantime...
