For many years now, I've been wanting to make a quilt for my bed. Our wallpaper, in that room, is very "busy". Recently, we got in some mini jelly rolls. I picked one up, and thought it had all the colors of my wallpaper in it.....found a pattern I thought would work. Made up a few blocks, but all I could see were smiley face icons......
So then, I thought about removing the "smiles" and staggering the blocks...
Another friend felt that there was no place for an eye to rest...still too busy. She had recently made a quilt using the new Log Cabin Ruler from Creative Grids. We played with the colors and settled on four that went well with the wallpaper.
So far, I have 50 blocks made. I'm thinking it's gonna take 104 to make a king sized quilt. The following pictures show several of the ways the blocks can be arranged. I hopeful to get enough done to play a little more with the style that will work best in this room.
So many options....

First, something old......I started this sweater years ago. It was forgotten and sleeveless all that time...but not anymore! It's a Pure and Simple Neckdown Sweater.
Made with Cascade 220
A new Knitting Bag
Mondo Bag. This will hold alot of stuff!
Feels good to actually be getting a few things made. If I could just keep up with a balance of old and new projects for the rest of this year...
