With all the things I *should* be doing this week, my mind is continually pulled to my postage stamp quilt. Maybe I just want what I can’t have, because I know I technically can’t start working on it right now. But those fabrics are soooo pretty!!! I keep help wanting to play with them.
Remember how my stash looked like this?
Well, not technically. If you truly want a random quilt, then sure, go all willy nilly. But Mary at The Curious Quilter pointed out that doing things this way could result in all of one type of fabric ending up in one area, despite your best intentions.
And that bugs me a lot. A lot.
So I’m going to go for a controlled-random look!
A few weeks ago, after reading Mary’s advice, I sorted, painstakingly, through all my squares. So far I have just created stacks of like fabrics.
It was nice getting them all stacked like this because I was able to get a feel for what fabrics were going to be most present in the quilt.
I’ll let you guys know how that goes!
