27 Jul More HST love
I’ve been working on a quilt this week for Cheryl Arkison’s Quilts Recover. When I first decided to participate, I thought I might make a quilt inspired by her logo which I love. As the time got closer though, I saw this quilt using the mosaic block that people are doing as part of the Summer Sampler Series quilt along. I love the block and, better yet, it is made up of HSTs! (I do plan to get over my obsession soon :))
Next question: what colors? I’ve been feeling like working with some black lately (unusual for me) so I decided that would be the background color. In general, when I make quilts for charity I try not to make them for young children. Based on the charity quilts I see at the large guild I belong to, there are already many quilts for younger children. So, I tend to think about teenagers, boys or less girly girls – or maybe even adults!
Anyway, I looked at my fabrics and decided on white, two yellows and grey. This shot is from my design wall a couple of days ago. I’ll be shipping it off to Cheryl soon.
