Color Crazy quilt beginnings

The holiday weekend was busy, but not too busy to work on my sewing projects. I sewed on my pinwheels, but I kept gazing at my stack of colorful fabrics that I've been able to trade for (trading Amy Butler and Heather Bailey stuff I bought 2 years ago). I made up my mind to cut, and cut, and cut, on the 4th of July. Then, I went out of town for a few days. When I returned home and laid it all out on my bed, it was TOO MUCH. Yes, too much color can be a bad thing. So, I rethought my new Color Crazy quilt, and came up with these blocks.

I'm going to sash these 12.5" blocks with white, and add cornerstones (is that what they are called), and I'm making it queen size for MY bed (although both daughters are already eyeing it!)

  1. Gorgeous very pretty colors! I'm not surprised your girls are eyeing it. These blocks will look great surrounded in white. The white space gives the eye a resting spot, just like in scrapbooking, and the corner posts are a great idea too!
