Trinkets 3


Progress on Trinkets has slowed but not stopped.

The layout that the pattern designer suggests is, for me, too much of a good thing. And I already mentioned my problem with the garish multiple bright colors.

I have a layout in mind that will require 49 trinkets. There are a total of 40 in the pattern, some of which I have decided not to make. So there will be doubles of some trinkets. I'm fine with that; different colors and orientations will make that less obvious.

I don't anticipate having a Trinket flimsy any time soon. But I'm having a good time and it is a really good preparation for camp.

Good for you for taking those Trinkets and making your quilt YOUR way! (and do you have a pattern source for those lovely little basket blocks?)

Progress is good even if it takes more time than you'd prefer. Enjoy the process and the ideas for block changes and possible layouts than come to mind as you sew.

Do you read the Sew Preetie blog? She make this quilt and used alternate squares to separate the trinket blocks. You could take a look if you want to.

Hugs!

Trinkets are new to me. Taking your time and marching to your own drummer is the only way to go, why not enjoy the process? I can't wait to see more of this one over time.

Seems to me that you have made really good progress. But I am all for "no deadlines" and doing things at my own pace. When you get around to it, I will enjoy seeing that flimsy.
