This quilt has a terrible name, but it's growing on me.
I started last week, before Superstorm Sandy, and made 4 blocks. I didn't like them.
I hemmed and hawed, thinking I could change the block somehow and have it turn into something I did like. I played. I cut more scraps, you know how it goes.
Then I started making several blocks at once (instead of: cut 49 squares, sew 49 squares, feel meh), and by the time I had 10, the pattern appeared! And my scraps looked good and scrappy!
I've had thoughts of stopping at 12 blocks and adding a thick border, but then I look at my scrap bins (I found another accidentally today, completely jam packed with pieces perfect for this project), and realize I should probably keep going. I have no idea where this quilt will end up (can't imagine it on my bed), but if I can clear through one bin of scraps at least, I'll love the quilt for it..
The name's gotta go though.. thinking about calling it "hurricane sandy"... for the chaos. Or for the calm it gave me during the chaos...
Have you made one of these yet? What were your feelings? Motivation? And how did it end up?
