I somehow found myself Purging Along with Rachel over at Stitched in Color. My first step was to make 168 four-patch blocks. I then tossed them up on the design wall, moved a few around to try and balance light and dark...and hated it. At first.
I'm in the process of sewing the blocks together and am realizing Quesy isn't going to be very big. And since I don't know that I can give it away, I decided to use borders to make it bigger (because I'm kind of tired of four-patches), plus we're supposed to be purging, right?
I have enough of this weird pink snakeskin to make a 3" inner border, but that's not much bigger. So I started pulling larger pieces to make a thicker outer border. The olive-y one was given to me, the middle one is Joel Dewberry Tartan from Notting Hill and the right one is from JoAnn's. What do you think?
It might be pushing it, but I think finishing this Quesy guy up is going to be my September goal for ALYOF!
Also linking up with the other Purgers!
