Project #2 has begun. A friend of mine asked me to make a quilt for her out of all her late dog's bandana's (Corky died a couple of weeks ago) Corky had tons of bandana's, he got one everytime he got groomed and my friend S. kept them all. Last weekend S. dropped them off for me to take a look at.
The bandana's are triangles (of different sizes) of different fabrics. After much deliberation and discussions with S. and my mom (who helps me with my quilting) I decided to do another scrappy quilt, like I made for my coworker.
I took all the bandana's and cut a 6 1/2 inch square out of the bandana's. The bandana's that were too small I took and sewed together and then cut a 6 1/2 inch square out of the sewn together bandana's.
I had to add about 13 squares of my own (that I had left over from a previous project).
I laid out all the squares on the floor and organized them. I'm not sure if I like the way I have set them up..so I am going to just leave them on the floor for a day or two and see if the quilt design grows on me.
Two projects at once...yikes....the pressure....LOL
