A couple of weeks ago while looking through pictures of my quilts to post on a FB challenge with a friend - I got the urge to make another quilt from men's shirt fabrics. I made several and called them Bunkhouse Quilts. So I got out the box with all the pre-cut strips. I had lots of 1.5" strips leftover in short lengths. I sewed them together and trimmed them into 5" squares. Sewed them into four patches.
Nine blocks - all medium and darks. Pretty boring, It looks darker in real life,
So to lighten it up - I made light blocks. Better but still boring.
I made some light blocks and cut out circles to applique to the dark blocks. I like this .
What if I use the dark circles that I removed from the behind the light circles on the light blocks too.
I should maybe add a dark inner border?
Maybe turn them on point - no.
I think I need to make more blocks - so now I'll have to cut more 1.5" strips.
