Yesterday, I was able to take a break from work and go to my LQS (Local Quilt Store).
I bought a Moda Marble, Mulberry to use as the backing on my Decadent Victorian quilt. I also picked up four 1/3 yard cuts of black fabrics to use in my next quilt. I am going to do a scrappy Triple Irish Chain.
To make it look a bit planned yet still scrappy, I am going to do 2 of the diagonals in assorted blacks while the rest of the small squares will be completely scraps. Each scrap piece of fabric is a 2" square. At the size I want to do the quilt, I need 1080 black squares (already cut!!!) and 1400+ of various scraps. I still have to cut about 600 more of the scraps.
While I'm cutting the squares for the Irish Chain quilt, I am also trying to organize the rest of my small pieces of fabric. I'm mostly following the ideas that Bonnie has laid out on her site Quiltville (thanks, Bonnie!!).
