{ scrap explosion ii }

i've been feeling very inspired by super-traditional scrappy quilts, so i thought i'd give one a try! i have four blocks finished out of probably 15 or so. each block measures 15" x 15" (they're big!) + each one is comprised of 36 disappearing 9-patch blocks.

 

wow, these blocks are intense! i was originally planning to sew all the blocks together without sashing (that's 4 blocks placed edge to edge in the above image), but now i'm thinking that sashing each of the blocks in white would be a better idea. the eye needs some resting points!

 

and it's just now sinking in how many different fabrics i have owned + used. so. many. all. different. wow.
