I am starting out the new week and new month with a new project...seems like the right thing to do, eh?!?
I started another one of Lori's great quilt-alongs over at Humble Quilts, and have the step #1 four patches on my design wall. Love 'em!
I enjoyed a relaxed evening sewing these adorable four patch blocks and cutting all the fabric for the quilt top.
I am using a charm pack called Vintage Modern that I bought on the summer Shop Hop (and I am giving one of these charm packs away to link ups on the Slow Sunday Stitching post!).
This is how I am cutting the charm squares, which gives me one of each of the sizes required plus one extra strip. It worked out perfectly!
For the "mountain trail" I am using a cherry red Kona solid.
I am slightly concerned, as I always am at the beginning of a new project, whether my fabrics will work the way I envision them. Here are the pieces laid out...the "darks" on the left and the "lights" on the right. I know that it will be a lower contrast quilt than the inspiration quilt and Lori's version, but am hoping that it will all turn out okay.
