So, I Started Out

I've been playing around a little with the boxed squares.   I was going to use all batiks, but then my eyes fell upon a quilt in Karen Snyder's book Fat Quarter Fun in which she alternated the blocks with a lighter constant.  I decided to use red as the constant and started sewing blocks together.

Then I thought, What if I add a border of Kaffe Fassett fabric?

Then other possibilities occurred to me.  Who knows where it all will end?

What I do know is that I have a lot more strips cut and that it will be interesting to see where it all goes. 
Yes, I'm muddling again, but it's good therapy.
I hope you're finding something therapeutic to do, too.
(Bruno is always therapeutic for me.)
Hugs and kisses,

You're right - it will be interesting to see where it all goes ... and I cannot wait.

Bruno is such a cute and handsome guy. It looks like he is smiling. Elaine, I am in love with your new square project. The fabric is stunning, this will be another beautiful quilt.
