I attended the Modern Quilting Sampler class with Katy Jones (aka I'm a Ginger Monkey) and had so much fun! I chose a multicoloured Jay McCarrol's Centre city fabric and paired it with some dark grey Kona for my triangles. Half square triangles give you THOUSANDS [ok, this may be a slight exaggeration] of possibilities for different layouts. I must say I spent HOURS
With fresh eyes I went back to my sketches and decided that I needed to go with one of my original ideas. I managed to sew these two borders onto the sides on Sunday. I am still waiting for more inspiration to strike on how to make it bigger - another plain border? Another border but of small squares? Or plus signs like on the Marcelle Medallion quilt? Decisions decisions!!

I will be showing my newest WiP to the gang at the London Modern Quilt Guild meeting on Sunday and no doubt I will have an ear full from Pennie about changing my layout from the + to this but I am ready to give her a bucket load of
The size at the moment is 43" x 43" which looks nice hung on my living room wall but I don't need a wall hanging. I am aiming for a nice throw-size quilt. Suggestions on a postcard please [or in the comments section!] what you would do to make it bigger.
Thank you to Annie and to Katy for a great class!
Linking to WiP Wednesday.
