color story quilt part 1

ah my blogging is always so skewed...everything gets pushed back till sunday lol.  anyway, i've been really loving the poseidon color story of kona cotton and decided to make a quilt

 so first i cut the fat quarters into 4"x4" squares-you should be able to get 20 squares from each color, plus a few scraps.  i'm keeping the long strip along the top-i'm thinking about sewing them together as a spectrum strip across the back of the quilt. 

when you're done you should have a pretty big pile of squares, some scraps, and a pile of long strips in each color.

then i sorted them into light/medium/dark colors.  i probably should've done this first...before i cut them into a million teeny tiny squares... 

then i laid them out-you should have exactly enough squares to make a quilt that is 20x21 squares.  i put the darker colors more toward the edge and the lighter colors toward the center. 

i got about half way through sewing this together when i ran out of thread...but on the plus side i guess that gives me time to choose fabric for the back and binding. 


  1. Wow! It looks great! Can't wait for the result! :)

  2. You're amazing! I'm not very crafty but I'm inspired by you. Can't wait to see more
