Lay out

I have now made over a hundred of these blocks
how should I lay out the quilt?
Like this?
Or as in my previous post?

Can't stop now

How big should I go?
Each block, a set of four, measures 10 1/2".
I need to do a bit more unpicking and washing.

How often

do you unpick?
change your mind?
when dark blue isn't dark enough?
go back to the stash?

go back to the shops?
Well, not that!

slow going

tiny pieces
lots of cutting

Each block is made up of 4 smaller bocks
each with 13 pieces..
that's 52...

I have long had the urge to make some quilts out of "solids".
And then I thought
why not 
combine that with my current thing and use some of my indigos?

I plan to do a block a day,
at least.

A closer look

Last week I did a workshop here called "Transforming Traditions"
The results are not so far removed from what I love doing:
The photos above show the front and back of an old piece of kimono fabric.

I like to remake the lovely old pieces into something useful
but for the time being I will stand back and admire my stitches.

Was my last post confusing?
