Orange preliminary


Now to cull the 45 best choices from these 220 squares. My X needs to be light on top, dark on the bottom, yellow-ish on one side and reddish on the other.

Edited to add: progress has been made!

Linking up here, here, and here.


Laying it out

Trying to plan colour placement before I start with fabric, so graph paper and pencil crayons instead.




I can’t remember if this set of pencil crayons is the set I got for Christmas when I was in university, way back in the mid-90s. If so, they’re well travelled but still in great shape.


And since this is a block in progress, I’m linking up with Quilter in the Closet for “building blocks Tuesday.”
