I'm not sure when, but somewhere on Instagram or clicking through Flickr I came across a post about Maureen Cracknell and the Herringbone Quilt she made using the quilt as you go (QAYG) method.
I have wanted to give QAYG a try, and this seemed like the perfect pattern
I chose Joel Dewberry Heirloom collection for my quilt
And I added solids, in Kona and Oakshott. I don't normally cut everything out ahead of time, I'm usually to anxious to see how colors will come together or if what I see in my brain translates to something that looks good in real life. This was all new to me
All my strips are 2 1/2"
After I cut everything, I remeasured my bed and realized I needed more strips, so some other Joel Dewberry and few more solids went into the strip piles
And then I started sewing strips to pre-cut batting strips
This is for my kind sized bed, and I look forward to one day being able to actually put it on my bed. I will work on strips in between other projects, so it's slow going, but it will get there. I have 7 strips completed so far
I'm very happy how this is turning out!
