I finally got started on the quilt for our Godson's 13th birthday.  It seems that I have started a tradition by making a more grown-up quilt for his two older sisters when they turned 13.  I decided to make a black and white quilt with hints of colour, and was inspired by a quilt I saw at a show last summer.  It is on the cover of "Accent on Angles" by Susan Purney Mark, found here.
In the past few days, I've cut strips, and sewn strip sets - all 6 1/2 inches, although made from 1 1/2, 2 1/2, and 3 1/2 inch strips.
Here is my pile of strip sets, organized in groups of fours and fives, ready for the next step.
I started cutting accent strips to prepare for the next step, but only had time to cut blues, purples and greens.  The rest of the variety of colours will have to wait until another day! 
Check out Judy's blog, Patchwork Times to see what others are creating today.
