WIP Wednesday - A Future Boy's Nonsense Quilt
Hello all, I've been back from our holiday in Canada for four days and am already regretting getting on the plane! The time flew by way too fast this year.
Even though it's only mid-August, with my summer vacation over this fall feeling has settled over me and got me looking to new projects. Although I have many more Glitter blocks to go, and my Single Girl quilt has turned into a Single and Sitting by the Phone Waiting for Me to Call quilt, I just had to whip up a few test blocks for the Boy's Nonsense quilt I've had in my head for a while now. (I don't feel quite as guilty if I call them "test blocks"!) Although Leila's gorgeous quilt was my inspiration, I got my block template from this site, downloading the 12" block.
The second picture is the fabrics I've pulled for this project. Looking at the picture I realized I'll probably need a few more dark coloured fabrics, as I'd like to do alternating lights/darks in the layout (as mentioned in Leila's tutorial). When I change the fabrics picture to black and white, (Leila's trick), there are way too many medium value fabrics. When I pulled them I had only thought about the colour palette, not light and dark. I'll have to see what else I have in the stash.
Thanks for stopping by.
