Judy at Patchwork Times is hosting a Labor Day Challenge quilting session--and I am finding it particularly challenging.
It looks easy enough, doesn't it? Just wonky squares inside other squares.
It's the wonky that's doing a number on my head. I am a traditionalist and it's making me crazy to deliberately have crooked lines in my squares.
This is my focus fabric--strange fabric. I don't remember where or why I bought it, but it's perfect for this project.
I cut it into wonky squares, as instructed.
And here are the coordinating fabrics:
Except it's taking more than I thought, and I'm not sure I'll be able to come up with enough in my stash that coordinates with the colors in the focus fabric. And HORRORS! We can't have fabric that doesn't coordinate, can we?
These are the 12 squares I made last night:
See the orange one? I goofed and had to piece the outer square because I didn't have enough fabric to remove that side and sew on another one.
This has definitely sent me out of my comfort zone.
Now, back to bed.
