Architextures HSTs WIP

Happy Wednesday everyone!


Here's what I am working on this week.  I sewed up the rest of the HSTs I needed for my Architextures quilt and threw everything up on the design wall. It was gratifying to chop up the many, many odd size/shape scraps of various shades of blue I had amassed and turn them into something.  My blue solids collection is almost manageable now (but really, you can never have too many blues, right?)

This is just the first layout, I am going to be tweaking it over the next several days, but I really like the direction it's heading. You know I love to see how far I can stretch a charm pack :)  I'm expecting not to add any borders, so this one should finish in the 56" sq ballpark(there are 3 more columns that wouldn't fit on my design wall.)



Linking up to WIP Wednesday, where she also has an HST project going!

  8. Nope, no such thing as too much blue. Love the random layout. I tried to go random with my HSTs but couldn't. Not that I don't love the result, I do do very much, but I'm always a bit in awe of those who can. :)

  9. That's really pretty. I think all of the blue makes a nice contrast with the other colors, making them stand out more. If that makes sense.

  10. Wow looks great! My bag of brown scraps is like that--manageable at best, but usually overflowing

  11. The blues look great with the largely lower volume Architextures. I have grand plans for my Architextures too. Love that collection!
