Isn't it amazing how sometimes people on opposite sides of the world start to do the same things at the same time? I was going through a quilt book recently, and this indigo quilt struck me as the perfect way to use up a lot of the rich, deep blues I've collected over the years.
Lori of Humble Quilts had used the same block for her last Quiltalong. Must have been something in the air.
The little 6" blocks are so cute and easy to put together; I cut all the 1.5" triangles with the Go Cutter, and then just one 4.75" square from the indigo material.
I think it's worthy of becoming a whole project, and I'm itching to start cutting, but.... I like Lori's quilt a lot too. I have so many lighter blues and browns that would work with sashing, like hers. I can't make up my mind what direction to go. Of course I could do both, but I might be very sick of those blocks if I made two quilts worth of them. What I need to do is come up with a similar block, that's interesting enough to keep my attention. I shall investigate that before I start cutting into the pile of blue fabric.
Every time Mereth and I go shopping in the supermarket we find ourselves exclaiming in disbelief over some new product. When I was young I was determined never to get 'old' and make statements like 'What is the world coming to!' But I'm tempted to say that about some of the things we find. I think we're well on the way to becoming crusty old codgers.
I love kale chips, but everyone knows that you can eat a whole bowl full and it takes longer to make them than to eat them. Now they come in a bag, ready to eat;
