I thought I should show you that I've been working on the blocks I showed you the other day--I haven't just been shopping non-stop this week. I still need to make one more whole block to go in the open spot and eight half blocks to fill in the triangles around the outside. And maybe four quarter blocks for the corners. But I have 12 blocks done so far, although right now it looks a bit chaotic.
See what I mean? All the blocks I've made are up on the design wall, on TOP of the red and cream quilt pieces, and these blocks kind of just bleed into one another, don't they? I'm planning to add some sashing between the blocks so they can stand out on their own better. I'm leaning toward white sashing but I was originally thinking of red with white polka dots. What do you think? White?
Did you know that tonight, Friday night, is the monthly Friday Night Sew In? I signed up and plan to work on this project--maybe I can get the rest of the blocks done and start on the sashing. Ideally, I'd like to get it finished this weekend and maybe even pinned for quilting.
If you haven't signed up and want to, just click on the button on my sidebar a little way down the page there. I bet you still have a project or two you'd like to work on, right? Maybe we can sew together. I'll bring the hot chocolate if you'll bring the marshmallows. See you there!
