Something New

I need to make a graduation quilt. I’ve been feeling rather uninspired about it. Actually, I haven’t felt very inspired quilting wise all year. It may look like I’ve been focused on UFOs, but that’s only because it felt easier to finish something old than to start something new. Not having any UFOs that felt appropriate for a young man, I was forced to the design wall. I started by pulling solids.

I started cutting bunches of 6 inch HSTs.

I didn’t count, just sewed any two that I grabbed. I narrowed my fabric pull considerably.

Okay, this is fun. But I don’t have enough triangles or I need to do something else.

Time to play some more! Have a great day!

    I really like how your top turned out. I’m interested in how you constructed it. Did you sew the squares into blocks first? What was your pressing strategy? I would love to make a one-patch quilt but I don’t know where to begin.

    Good luck. I’m trying to clear up WIPs….it’s a slow process LOL

  3. Solid inspiration! I have to finish a few things I have in the works, then it is SOLIDS time for me!
