I have slowly been cutting FOTY squares. You’ll see a lot of these are the Textured Basics by Patty Young as well as blues and turquoises.
Despite my purported reluctance to use patterns, I found a pattern in Easy Quilts (don’t fall over in shock and horror) that I thought was interesting. In the photo in the magazine, I thought the Patty Young prints looked really fresh. When I got them, they had a bit too much beige in the light areas, but I still like the reds, greens and turquoise. As I was cutting for FOTY, I cut the pieces for this quilt as well. The pieces are large and it will go together easily, but there isn’t really anything to show on the blog yet, especially since my design walls are still both covered with Sawtooth Stars.
I am also in the midst of making a lot of 4″ Sawtooth Stars. I should be able to finish the last 15 today and start putting the top together, thus the other blue fabrics in this group.
