Playing With Squares

I'm cutting 5 1/2 inch squares from the shirts my Stepson wanted to get rid of and playing with them on this bed which serves as my design surface.



This is by far the simplest quilt pattern I've made, but I still need to make sure I've scattered the colors about evenly.



I need to cut some more of the muslin squares and the setting triangles and borders, but I will be sewing the patches together in a couple of days.



I'm linking this post to Design Wall Monday at Judy's Patchwork Times. and to WIP Wednesday at Lee's Fresly Pieced Blog.

I think your 'shirt' quilt is looking terrific. I love the way the colors play together. Happy sewing!
