Having spent a day or two letting things simmer while I attended a funeral, mopped up quite a lot of sick and enjoyed a very pleasant walk in the bluebell woods, I came back to my unco-operative fabrics.
For the curious amongst you, I had originally thought I would keep it simple and carry on with the pinwheels I used in last quilt, but had then been distracted by this combination of pointy triangles and cross blocks, which I love. But no, instead I'm making these housetop/quarter log cabins. They weren't on the my radar at all, and to be honest I'm a bit scared of them as I think it would be easy to end up with something very predictable.
I also have, of course, not a clue what else I am going to put with them, or how it will all hang together, but there you go; I've made a start and will have to feel my way for now. Before I do anything else I'm going to make a few more of these, sticking to the fabrics I've already used, and see how that feels.
All part of the fun, I guess!
