Thanks so much for all the encouragment on my "wrong" (or different) spinning blocks!
I ended up setting the blocks as is, bordering them with leftover plaids...and will use the remaining blocks in a completely different quilt.I want to toy with different lay outs, maybe add a different design element and see what it looks like.
This turned out to be a good twin size...and it will be a nice lay on the couch size too. I'm happy with it!
You can tell from the close up pics that I used a lot of OLD lights in this quilt. There are cutesy hearts and chickens and music notes and a whole variety of old old calico prints as well as all the plaids.
Some of these fabrics are at least 20 years old!
All the light 2.5" squares for the digaonal corners came from the 2.5" square bin, and because I double sewed all the corners, I now have a gadzillion little 1/2 square triangles to square up and sew into some cute little blocks down the road.
I'm off to work...got massage clients lined up til about 4pm this afternoon.
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
