I thought I would give you a little update on XOXO quillt for WIP Wednesday. We had a little get together sewing day with local girls on Sunday and I did some great progress on that quilt top.
I managed to finish all my letters and, by the end of the day, I was trying to find a layout. I must say that it is quite tricky to find a layout when picking the colours wasn’t part of the design process. All I did was using all my pink fabrics from my stash. And when I say “all my pink”, I really mean every single print or solid I own in pink.
I’m a big fan of buying and sewing new designer’s fabric collections. But I also like the feel from a random patchwork with random fabrics. To me, I feel closer to the people who were doing patchwork in the first place. They were not planing on specific fabric designs but used what they had on hand. Doing a random patchwork makes me feel part of this line of quilters.
The girls from the get together helped me to find a layout. Are you willing to help too? Which option would you prefer? What letters would you switch?
