Since I last posted about my Year 30 quilt, I've been working away and making a block every day. I finished up my experimentation with improv curves (I love them, but not so much in a 4 1/2" square block) and moved on to four patch blocks. After that, I tried stripes, which I really enjoyed. There is definitely a crazy striped quilt or two in my near future.
After the week of stripes, I moved on to fussy cutting. This was convenient, because I was having a very busy week and it let me make some of my blocks out of a simple 4 1/2" square, cut to highlight a feature of the fabric.
I'm really enjoying this process, especially when I don't leave it to the last possible minute to make my block. My quilt is definitely looking pretty cray-cray - I guess that's the challenge with a slow burning project where you don't plan very much ahead!
If you've just joined me, this quilt is part of a challenge to myself, and I'm making one 4 1/2" square block every day over the course of my 30th year. You can read more about the challenge here and here.
This is a very long term WIP for me, so I'm linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced:
