Project Spectrum Strips

Project Spectrum colours for February and March are Blue, White and Grey.

I pulled all the 1 1/4 and 1 1/2" strip boxes out, Phil sorted them for me, and I have been sewing them together.

This afternoon I sewed the blue strips and got 12 x 10" blocks sewn, and used up all the blue strips. I thought I would get 8 blocks, so I was not too far off the mark!

I think they look quite good when they are laid out like this!

Here are the cream ones I did a few weeks ago.

These are sewn directly onto the wadding, so I can try some reversible quilts (see 19th Jan post). I have thought of a block to use on the other side of the wadding, but I want to get all the strips sewn on first, to see which colours I will group together!

Project Spectrum colours for April/May are Green, Yellow, Pink. I am going to start on the green strips next....getting a head start, as there are heaps of green strips.
but for now, I am about to start quilt #5.
