Only 45 more
Believe it or not I am finally starting the quilt for our couch. (I’ve only been thinking about it, almost starting it and then putting all of my supplies away for almost a year now) Since I couldn’t decide on a color palette, I was looking on Pinterest for ideas. I showed this quilt to Ryan and he said he liked it better than some of the other patterns I had showed him.

So, now I’ve been busy cutting random 5 inch by 5 inch squares.
The pile on the left is the actual 5x5 squares and the pile on the right is the strips left over. Before last night I had less than 50 squares cut.
I stayed up and cut fabric until 11pm. Now, I only have about 45 more squares left to cut. Those remaining squares just might need to wait a bit but getting that much closer feels pretty nice. I might piece together some of my scrap strips to create a few of the last 5 x 5 squares?! Any thoughts?
Also, I tried laying out a few rows to see how it might look. Should I just pick completely random pieces to put next to one another or do I play with it a little to make it look random but make sure that I like which colors are next to each other? I can’t decide and I would love some feedback.
Hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend!
