I've only been a part of the More Quilting for Fun group a few months. I'm not very good at ring hopping, but I do try to meet the WIP Wednesday commitment.I showed you these blocks back a week or so ago when I finally completed all 64 of them...this photo is from the older picture program I had with Dell.Note the color difference in the next picture from the Windows program.And here lie the blocks today *VBS* Spread out all over the sewing room floor, but IN ROWS and getting stitched together. Definitely a work in progress!
I have 8 rows of 8 blocks each and altho I usually do the "webbing" Bonnie describes at Quiltville, this time I decided to just lay them out and sew them 2 X 2. I have 5 rows done, and hope to finish up the last 3 yet this afternoon. Then comes joining the rows to each other...oh joy! And finding border fabrics. If I had more of the Hoffman cream background, I'd probably do a narrow light and then some color, like grape, but I don't have even a smidgen of the cream left, and it's ELDERLY..not much chance of finding any more(story of my life). So I'm thinking of a narrow kind of dull celery green. There used to be a Roberta Horton Plaid in that color, it's in the triangles. And for the outer border, probably a soft frosted type grape-ish purple. What do you think???
Phebe - I love applique!
