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!!
