A couple days ago I got into the mood again to work on my "Orange and Gray" quilt. I have worked off and on this year, on this quilt. The funny thing is I don't know what size quilt I am doing for sure. I have mulled over the idea of making a queen size for my bed (not sure if Tanya could live with it) or making a twin size or even lap size. For that matter I could make a few baby quilts.
I have 30 plus different orange fabrics and same with gray fabrics (Well maybe a few more shades of orange then the gray). The design goal I have for the quilt is 5 x 5 blocks like below in rows alternating with gray blocks also 5 x 5. I plan to put strips of gray between the gray and orange alternating blocks with orange corner stones.
Before making these newest 11 blocks, I had 13 orange ones. A grand total of 24 orange blocks. I think my gray blocks are in the range of 15 or 16 last I checked. If I do a lap size I might already have enough. If I do a queen I still have a lot to go.
Sadly I had to put the blocks back away today and get to work on my SewBatik challenge quilt. So far I have finished 6 of 9 blocks. I had stopped working on this last week when I had ran out of brown. The first time I ordered more, I accidentally ordered the color I wanted in Rayon. I don't even know what Rayon is, but its definitely felt wrong. Anyone ever used Rayon? I have some and don't know what to do with it, just know its wrong for my quilt.
What secret projects have you all been up to over the last few weeks?
