Our front room needs updating generally, and a quilt seemed a great way to get started.
Inspired by THIS TUTORIAL, I used a different layout.
In some ways it is different for me with a neutral palate and relatively large pieces.
But still scrappy all the way with nearly 100 different fabrics represented.
With four quilts active and all more or less in the same piece-till-doomsday phase, it was encouraging to push one forward a complete step.
With only 8 blocks to do, it became my main project for the weekend, and I informed Husband there would be extra sewing time (He is such a good sport).
The blocks were not only finished, but started layout.
And decided on one I am happy with. A few more adjustments and I hope to have a finished top to share by the end of the week.

This is the third Welcome Home top finished for donation.
They are quick and each–all 2-1/2″ strips and only 48 blocks. You can get all the details HERE: TUTORIAL: Welcome Home Quilt Block – Wedding Dress Blue (wordpress.com)
I like the scrappy happy look, but it is easy to see a more controlled color scheme could be used for wedding quilts, quilts of valor or just about any occasion.
Pushing towards a finish soon.
I had some quilting time a week or so ago and finished three little ones. Here is Traffic Pattern.

If you need a quick quilt, this might be just the thing.
