I had an overwhelming urge to start something new this weekend. Not because I had finished anything old, just because I could. It started simply enough. I was sitting at an ice skating rehearsal with my cutting mat and some extra fabric from RRCB step 4. The girls still had an hour on the ice and Ryan was busy playing games on my computer. So I sliced up some green and neutral fabric into 3.5 and 2 inch strips. The nice thing about these blocks is that even though they need two strip sets, you use about the same amount of each, making it is easy to plan. I love making nine patches, but its a chore to make matched sets when you need twice as much of one arrangement as the other. When I came home I found some yellow to go along with the green. I seriously considered red for a Christmas quilt, but I think the yellow is cheerful. I'm still playing with the layout, it was a straight diagonal at first, but now I'm working on a V like chevron shape. Maybe if it gets big enough I can work on a W or M. Maybe I should do some math and figure out how big I want it to be? Mabye I'll just keep going until I get tired of making blocks.
