Welcome to my world where I try to figure out what I'm going to do next! These days, it is mostly quilting, but you never know what it might be... come find out with me!

There was a change of plans

I just wasn't thrilled with my design for the DQS10 this time round, and so I wasn't making any head way on it. I originally thought I was going to do this

full size

with some or all these fabrics

But I was kinda ho hum about it. Today I tried out what I thought would be my method and YUCK! I hated it! Not going that way for sure, and no, there are no pictures - it was a disaster!

Luckily, last weekend I had that fabulous workshop (see this post) where we did 60 degree angles, so I thought why not incorporate that technique? I still love the colours and fabrics I choose, so this is where it is headed now.

I'm liking this! I started with 2.5" strips, but I think I'm going to see about throwing some little babies in there, maybe 1.5" strips, just to give it some more action!

I also got my 4x6ers postcards done, and they'll be going in the mail tomorrow. Theme this time round was monochromatic - here's a little tease!

So, what do you think?

Happy quilting!

Glad to see that someone also has ideas that turn out "disasters". Love the 60 degree angle work and the colours. I'd be curious to see how you incorporate the 1.5 inch pieces.

Enjoying your decision making :)

Gorgeous fabrics and can't wait to see how it tuns out. I like the idea of monochrome postcards.
