In the Works

This is a small selection of fabric that I am piecing together.  I've many ideas as to what design to use, and even what other fabrics to add, but somehow (no surprise) I keep changing my mine.  

I thought I had decided on a quilt pattern designed by Lorna of Sew Fresh Quilts and started cutting according to the directions. I cut the chosen fabrics in three sizes, 2.5", 3" and 5" squares.   I knew this was only the tip of the iceberg, which gave me too much time to think.  

 So I started sewing, lots of sewing!

It took me several sittings to chain piece these  (80+) 5" HSTs.

Well, that's where it's at right now.  I need more Kona white and many more squares.  I think I've come up with a design, which I need to draw out or I'll be cutting fabric forever. Without a plan, who knows how many HSTs I'll make.

And the quilt pattern by Sew Fresh Quilts, I've already compiled a new selection of fabrics!

My other project in the works is from Stash Bee 2014.  I designed a block which you can read about here.
I received quite a variety of blocks, it was exciting!

I'm playing with the layout.  The first layout requires I make another block - should I?  I like the second layout, although I'm thinking it could use some white sashing of some sort, maybe on two sides of each block & twist them around.  Increase the negative space a bit.  Maybe add large squares of white?  Too many ideas floating in my head over this one!
