This is fun - I'm suddenly all excited about the denim circles again. There's been something liberating about deciding I could start working on this now and I have been happily moving blocks around and cutting more shirt strips.
So far I haven't made many firm decisions, except that I have sewn one or two strips in where my 9 patches are very different sizes. Of course once you start actually sewing the seam allowances kick in, so some have ended up much smaller than they looked when I laid them out, but I like them still.
I've also made a couple of extra little blue 9 patches and in a couple of places have taken out a circle and added one of these. I'm thinking I will do more of this, once I can get to my stash tomorrow and dig out some blues. Looking at the photo now I don't know if this is all that clear - when everything is blue it can be a bit hard to spot the details, but not much I can do about that!
I'm also thinking about Ann's suggestion of adding some X blocks or lattice blocks (I'm afraid I don't own Cultural Fusion Quilts so I had to google these).
Something is definitely working itself out in my head. Hopefully I'll be able to make some more units of various sorts in the next few days and get on with things.
