Decisions, Decisions

Plan A

I wanted it to be chaotic, random, asymmetric, higgledy piggledy with different shapes going off at a tangent (in fact no planned layout at all) but it didn't want to do that.


I wanted it to be organic with one shape growing out of another being unpredictable but it didn't want to do that.

Plan B

 It wanted to line itself up ...


... and be organised.


Note to self:- I want - doesn't get.

Plan C

We decided on a compromise. It felt happy in small units so I'm making 4 large blocks with the centre corner missing. There will be a centre block in the middle. The shapes will put themselves together for 4 of the blocks and I shall try to have one 'alternative' block (Plan A) showing my original intention of random, organic design.


That's the plan so far - I'm rapidly running out of wool so new colours are being added. 

I feel a Plan D coming along!

Welcome to my New Follower - it's good to hear from you. I hope you enjoy your visits.

    1. I'm not a great fan of blue either so I thought I'd use all my blues up for this. I've toned it down by adding the green and white. I was inspired by a quilt on, Fxxx yeah Granny Square blog.
