Working on the Focus Through the Prism Challenge requires some intricate paper foundation piecing - something I seem to be having trouble focusing on. No pun intended - just too intense for my current attention span. In the meantime, I need to sit at the machine! Not only do I want to stitch, the sitting up at the table is rehabbing the ab muscles.
What I needed was a simple straight line, basic shape project. What I had on hand was this Bali Pop - Splash. I totally scored this precut pack on final clearance for 20% off the already marked down price. No way I could pass that up.
LOVE the bright, summery colors. And it's just what I need right now - a project with very little thinking. How little thinking? This is my sketch.
Nope you aren't missing anything - it literally is just an outline of the quilt to scale with a few quilt math notes on block size. Simple squares and rectangles will make a 48 inch square lap quilt.
The pack contained 40 strips and I only need 32, so I was able to remove the few gray toned colors I didn't care for. I want just hot pure color in this quilt. This is the range that was left after editing.
The project has 8 large rectangle blocks so I pulled 2 non-patterned strips of each color family and started there.
One strip makes 1 large block. One strip will make 2 small blocks and I need 48 of those. Those will be my project for the weekend. Stop back next week to see how much I get done.
Have a great weekend.
