One big circle and a few crosses

It always feels like a big step when I start joining chunks together but that's where I've got to with this.  I spent a while fiddling about with the centre strip: I knew I wanted that striped fabric but it felt like it needed a bit of interrupting so I tried some options out using little scraps.


In the end I have just added in three little bits of the blue and white stripe that you can see right in the middle.  

Then the next little chunk:


When I was cropping the photo (to spare you the sight of shoes, chairs, bags...) I thought "oh, this doesn't look like much".  Fortunately once it's in place I like it more!

And this is where I left it.

  5. You'll have a whole quilt soon. (And no fabric from me...I'm so sorry!) But on a happy note, this one looks like it knows what it wants and it's getting exactly that!

  10. It's interesting to watch this develop and read about your decision-making process. I think these long strips work because you repeated them even as you varied the fabrics used. So interesting.
