O.k., say you were going to abandon idea one - not really worth mentioning - but I probably first blogged about it in February 2007! (I did, but I am not going to link directly to is because there is some pretty cool quilty stuff back there. Go & look. Remeber that the Mid-Altantic quilt show is held in February. This link goes to February 2007 - all 28 posts.)
Idea two is to just make scrappy Half Square Triangles - cat print & scrappy browns. (I plan on using the draw a line down the center & sew on either side method - getting two for one out of my sewing.)
What size would you make the Half Square Triangles? The cats are small - they would probably fit under a quarter - for scale. The fabric is still wrapped on a standard bolt core - another scale reference.
& this is a rhetorical question - should I add some solid kona browns? YES! (how many?)
In general, I am going to lay this out like a barn raising log cabin - or straight furrows - or I will play more with the blocks once they are pieced... (I once read - probably in a Mary Ellen Hopkins book that Half Square Triangles are Log Cabin blocks when you are designing - or vice versa. Can anyone corroborate - or am I experiencing faulty memory again?) I would probably like to make at least 100 (10 x 10 setting) maybe 144 blocks so that the layout will have a chance to develop.
To answer my own darn question - 5 inches? Maybe I should look at the fabric again & see how big it would need to be to get kitties in both Half Square Triangles & if that looks funky tree wise. If you know what I mean...
