I’ve just spent the past two hours trying to set up some kind of graduated layout using the 2″ squares I cut from the jellyroll I bought from Whims.
Not an easy task I discovered – 40 different fabrics (20 2″ squares of each) which I’d put in tonal groups in ziplock bags. Trying to keep track of what I used and what I had was not so straightforward.
This is my first graduated layout. I am thinking about sewing this together just to see how it turns out but I have no idea what I’d do with it after that! This array would end up about 16″ wide x 20″ long. Although I started with 40 different fabrics many are rather dull and not easy to incorporate into this layout.
Looking at the photo, now, I think I may rework this layout by extending the dark colours further to the right and see what else may be possible with the dull colours in the middle. That will mean collecting up squares from the same fabric, piling them to one side, then digging through the bags for more of squares that belong to the darker colours!
It’s gonna sit on my cutting table over night, and likely into the weekend before I actually time to take it apart and start over.
It looks great the way it is, perhaps it could be a wall hanging?
Here’s a link to the finished wall hanging: https://jmncreativeendeavours.ca/2019/06/04/garden-in-bloom-a-colourwash-quilt/
Good attempt. Continue and finish it please. It looks nice already .
This wall piece was finished quite a while ago: https://wordpress.com/read/blogs/20189250/posts/5514 – take a look. I bound it with a facing/hidden binding.
Love to see how you finished it.
Que trabalho maravilhoso! Ficaria lindo como panô, um quadro ou uma belíssima Colcha.
Parabéns, ficou harmonioso.
Any update on this? I’d love to see the finished project if possible. It’s beautiful and inspiring!
Here is a link to the finished piece with some description of how I went about finishing it. Hope this helps.
