I have been wanting to make a "little quilt" for quite some time now and since my UFO pile has gotten smaller I decided that it was time to start another project. I found this one in a 2009 Quilts & More Magazine, I am using scraps so the colors will be dependent on the number of prints that I have left in Pink Chocolate scraps.
As I started cutting I wasn''t sure if I was going to use the lighter fabric with the triangles on the front (might use for backing) so I cut and sewed a few and decided that I didn't like it right next to the other patterns. So....I have to confess that I did go buy 1/2 a yard of Moda Marble(the tan block in the layout picture) since there was nothing that would match in my scraps.
So here is what I have completed so far, I sewed the first row together but I will do the rest when the other nine patches are completed so I can move them around. One reason I decided to try this now is because there are lots of small pieces in month 7 of the Civil War Quilt and the practice would be helpful.
