Last week I started to play with a new quilt pattern, Hugs and Kisses by Jaybird Quilts. This uses the Lazy Angle ruler (CGR3754) which is my new favorite ruler. Now the pattern uses 2 1/2" strips but I've put my own spin on it using scrap strips of various widths. So far I have about half of the quilt blocks done.
Here is a close of some of the fabrics - lots of brights and novelty - all leftovers from various log cabin and pineapple quilt blocks I've made.
My first thought was to use a small random dotty fabric to fill in the diamond areas but then I was looking at the blocks on the wall and somehow the open areas appeared to be windows, so now I'm thinking of using a cloud/sky fabric and cutting the four triangle pieces as one diamond piece. I'd have to do some partial or inset seams but I think I'd really like the effect. I don't know if I have any sky fabric in my stash that will work but I did see a couple of possibilities online.
