I'm just puttering away the last days of 2018, making a couch quilt as an Arizona 'condo warming' gift for a family member.
Despite the simple design, after making a few blocks I found it too time consuming to think about what colors and what pattern would be suitable for each one. So I decided to cut each background square first...choosing the colors as needed as they were arranged on the design wall.
After all the squares were cut, I only needed to concentrate on what colors the strips would be for each one. So at Step Two: nearly all the strips are cut and paired with their specific block.
On Step Three: I'll decide the placement and sew the strip/strips into each block, keeping in mind the look of each surrounding block. Yup, there's surely a faster way to work, yet this pre-planning way of construction is what works for me.
Come back won't you to see how this all comes together.
