Once all 12 blocks are complete I will start assembling the 'body' of the quilt, the background value squares made of HST's. Then the sampler blocks get 'swirled' around the offset center.
The colors are so striking, very manly I think. Reds, blues, browns, black and cream in dark saturated colors and not a flower in sight. Here's a pile for the background HST's; prints include stripe, polka dot, paisley and geometric. For the boarder I will use the left over 4" squares and strips to create a scrappy frame for this quilt.
The more I work on it this the more I like it. Knowing that it is going to a good home and I'll be able to visit helps my separation anxiety!
I'm linking up this post with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday. My first link up of the new year!
Well more when I get it further along!
