Week 30

 I hope you aren't getting tired of seeing these coloring pages. I have been trying to change things, one block at a time to make sure that I want to make the blocks the way the pattern designer chose. In this drawing, you can see that some of the equilateral triangles, the tri-rec bloks, have light triangles while some of them have dark triangles. My original drawings had them all with the dark triangles. 

I like them both ways, but the change is really subtle so I am going to go along with the original plan and make them both ways. I really like the colors in this drawing, but mine are all going to be mostly blue and black with hints of other colors.

I am not going to sew the together into blocks until I try out different settings. Most of the changes are so subtle though that I will probably go with the original layout.

2022: 15 Minutes to Stitch Week 30


This week, I sewed all of the square in a square blocks for the Jazzy Blues quilt. I need to cut off the dog ears and do some minor trimming them up to size. I found a template for the equilateral triangles that will be used for the rest of the blocks. They will be made in different colorways.

I chose the constant color for the next set of postage stamp blocks.

I also made a plan for the mini quilt I will be making from the trimmings I showed you last week.

15 minute days these two weeks --7 out of 7
15 minute days this year -- 160 out of 205 days
Success rate  = 78%

I don't think any layout could be wrong with the blocks and the fabrics you chose. I am sure going to wish I could see it in person when it is done.

Planning and making changes on paper is far smarter than stitching and then having to rip up seams.
Have fun!

The coloring and planning is meditative!
