I haven't been able to get much sewing in, but after a fun yesterday I have this
these are strip components that I may sew together to make string blocks like the ones in #100 Crazy Star. Some of you picked that one and were just sewing things together and it looked fun, so decided to make some too. I'm thinking this will be in my medallion center:
This is all just playing right now, making bits before I decide how to put them together. I'm going to do some letters to toss into the mix for the center. My problem right now is I love how this center looks put together like this, rather than using them to make the Crazy Star blocks where they come in at all sorts of angles. That way is definitely more lively, but this has a simplicity I like too.
As far as class stuff goes, have you all picked a quilt to be inspired by? You can see from my work that you don't have to choose just one quilt - you can grab bits and pieces from many. Have you got your fabrics? At a certain point, it's better to just go with your gut and PICK rather than overthinking it. I do that myself and it doesn't get me anywhere. Just sew.
