Wednesday Work in Progress
I am quilting a scrap quilt with baptist fans. Lynn Roddy Brown spoke at our guild last year and inspired some of the members to form a block swap group. We swapped 4 inch four patches, and 4 inch half square triangles in May and June. There are a wide variety of fabrics in this quilt. When I first looked at all my blocks together it looked very orange/brown. I added more blocks with primary colors to balance it out, and chose the blue border to counter the many orange segments.
while I was sewing the blocks together, I kept thinking I would quilt it with the purple thread...today I switched to the gray, which isn't as blue as it looks in the picture.
The top went together really quickly with the 4 patches and HSTs already made.
