Saturday Evening Progress....


The more I sew these blocks to their sashings, the more I like this. Here is the Work-in-progress at my machine!Yes, the gingham is subtle...but I like that. It doesn't upstage the blocks. And where I used the scrappy cornerstones in the sashing, it repeats the 9 patch center of each block...and becomes part of the overall design.

Not sure about borders yet, but it will come :c)

I also have to HAVE to show you this darling bouquet that showed up at my door this afternoon. Thank you SO MUCH Karen J!! *hugs* You darling..you brought the yellow sunshine right to my door! I love the mug....when the flowers are gone I'll be using it for my morning tea.

I see you are "webbing" the top. Such a great way to keep things straight.
I really like this one and will be using the "Leaders and Enders" technique to make mine.
I have the "box" an external storage for all my pics too. Yea...hate to lose them!
Still snowing here in Indiana. I cut all my pinks for the DD quilt. Ready to jump in sewing! WHOOOHOOO!

Neighbor Bonnie, I like your new quilt very much but still am leaning towards liking the mourning print that you first showed. I know it is too late for that so I am hoping that your borders will bring it all together and I will forget about that other fabric ... which I know you will use in some other wonderful quilt. Wow, you are a "get'er done" person for sure.

The sashing color choice is really critical, certainly! I like that your share your design decisions with us. It's hard to cut up things just to audition but it seems to be a requirement to get the entire effect. I'll be auditioning sashings for the Pineapple Blossom quilt I am currently making in red and white scrappy...I'm thinking black and white print. Maybe I'll try a gingham since it is such a friendly fabric.

Glad you are sounding more upbeat. I love those flowers.

Take care.
