no prints allowed progress

there is seriously something wrong with me! i started this challenge with a clear image in my mind of what i would do. it was a copy of my hourglass quilt. which i love. even though it's not finished. stop judging me.


but once i had all my half square triangles sewed together, and marked, and pinned all perfectly with seams lined up, i thought, what if...  and started playing with the squares.  making pinwheels.  making diamonds.  and then chevrons.
















love it!  after seeing this pic, i did break up the one dark red and used it as a border piece.  out of the robert kaufman dusty charm pack, i only had three orange squares left over.  i did sub one square with a light gray kona, because i thought it was a little heavy on the oranges.  i love this idea, think how great it would look in other colorways?  i think this one makes a nice modern baby boy quilt.

i still need to piece together the blocks, and i'm thinking about a border too to make it a little bigger.  i'd love to do a print back, but since the challenge is "no prints" i am thinking of other ideas.  i have til march - maybe i'll actually meet the deadline!!
