Or maybe two colors. I have so many UFO's and WIP's that, of course, I've been happily playing in my scraps and avoiding all those projects. I started out to make a crumb quilt, inspired by Bonnie Hunter http://www.quiltville.com and by a "Crumb Along with Me" project on the blog Jo's Country Junction (http://www.joscountryjunction.com/?page_id=4906).
So, out come the crumbs and strings. But I had trouble just sewing pieces together randomly....and I made a bunch of four patches, wonky flying geese, etc. My only rules were: (1) 6.5 in blocks and (2) some red or blue (or both) in each block. Now I have almost 70 of these blocks and had a lot of fun playing with scraps. The first photo shows the blocks on my design wall.
The second photo is from a Bonnie Hunter quilt and it is the setting I want to use....a 14" block composed of four of the crumby blocks plus sashing, and then wider sashing between the 14" blocks. I wouldn't do the HST's around the blocks like Bonnie did.
What I can't decide is the colors for the two sashings. To my eye, the dominant color in the blocks is the dark blue. To DH, his eye sees mostly the reds. I don't care for the gold in Bonnie's block but I'm thinking maybe a dark or burnt orange for the sashing within the blocks. And I'm clueless about what I want for the sashing between the blocks.
Help me out with color ideas, PLEASE!!
