I've decided to use 6-1/2" squares in the quilt I'm making this weekend while I retreat. I'm using neutrals for the background. Here's what the pile looked like last night:
I culled it down to about two thirds and started cutting squares. Here are a sampling of the squares:
I did end up cutting all but 19 squares before I had to stop. Tonight after work I intend to finish cutting those few squares and then I'll have that part all ready for the weekend!
Still not sure if I'll be putting hearts or flowers or both on the top. Haven't really decided.
