a little start

I plunged into my precious Cherrywood fabric Scrap bags (small pieces, but a nice variation in colors) and started cutting.

My "stash" is small, so I am aiming for a small crib size quilt. Here is my blocks so far:

Not sure about layout, yet. I have some different ideas to try out. I would like to keep it simple...

Since I don't have any bigger pieces of the Cherrywood, I will probably throw in some Kona cotton for borders and more.

it's beautiful. I love how you've combined the fabrics. the darker gray for the triangles with the lighter gray for the straight parts.

Thank you all for your nice feedback! It is good to have started sewing. Sometimes I think and plan to much. Part of this liberated class for me is to do more and think less...
