Inspired by these colours and the old-time-y vibe, I pulled a stack of coordinating fabrics from my stash and set to work cutting them into 4 1/2" squares and a few HST units. Lots of them - I got seriously carried away and cut some 70+ more than required. Oh well, more for the scrap bins.
Just like my Pedal Pusher quilt, I'm going for a random, scrappy style. However this time around, rather than sewing the squares into strips, I joined them into 9-patch units. I'm finding this is coming together a lot more quickly, but I'm still able to achieve the randomness that I'm going for. Here's a sneak peek:
This quilt top won't take long to finish, which doesn't give me much time to come up with a quilting plan. Maybe a diagonal grid, or orange peel, or stippling? Or perhaps some fail-proof straight lines? Any suggestions would be most welcome!
Linking up to Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday!
Happy Apple Dumpling Day!
