I am planning on a quilt for my bed and I want it to be simple, but nice. Someday I will make something more detailed, but for now, I want something I like and something I can make quickly. So, I went through all of my old quilt magazines and found one I like in a 1997 Quilt magazine. It is called Homeward bound and I like how they used shirting in the blocks. I want to do mine with darker colors and mix up the shirtings with homespuns, I have a few with stripes and in all types of colors.
I was thinking of using my blacks in place of the orange blocks and darker white or cream for the light whites, they mixing up the triangle blocks with hit and miss fabrics from my stash.
Here are some of the fabrics I am playing with, I love the blacks and some of the homespuns, some might be too light. Would love suggestions on colors and layouts, it is getting warmer, so want to get this one done first, so I can use it. I definitely want to use the blue and tan striped on the bottom left and the blue stripes on the top of the pile.
