As promised.. I wanted to get going on getting re-aquainted with my stash of vintage blocks ,pieces and parts with the intention of putting them together into tops this year.
Right on top, in one of the tubs were 3 sets of 9 patches. A set of 45, a set of 42 and a set of 20. They were all within the 8-8.5 ish inches square category .
I say "Ish" because they are all hand pieced and pretty wonky. When I use vintage blocks I always want to add to them , rather than cut them down.
So I'm not ruling out adding some fabric to the smaller ones. But who knows... it could get even uglier... if that's even possible!
Fun is the objective here, not math!
I wasnt loving the warm tones with all of this blue and grey so I yanked em!
So now ....I just have to figure out how to get these all to play together nicely.(!?)Yeah.
Some measure as small as 7.5 and some are as large as 8.5.
I'm thinkin about adding a shirting or a light value plaid to the center group of 20.. and maybe a lighter chambray to the others because that is what I know I have. But then it might be fun to add something really high contrast like a RED! I know I have yardage of both a red chambray and a nice red solid...
Looks like more some more excavation into my stash is called for!
