I liked both fabrics I chose before, but I have settled on the sunflower borders. I want to make this king size though. To do that, I will add another fabric in yellow into the blocks and then alternate the colors of the blocks in “boxes” or rings. I will start with a cheddar star block in the middle of the quilt, then surround that with yellow star blocks, then surround that with cheddar star blocks, etc. – kind of like making ripples….If you click on the picture, it will show you a bigger image!
I have about 10 of each DD blocks done. While on our road trip, I helped my friend find a border for her DD. But I realized I hadn’t really considered mine (after the trip was over of course). I am not sure which way I want to head. Busy or plain? What would you do? I think I am favoring the dark green at this point….
I have a bit of a cold and the kids had a snow day today, so I did not get too much sewing done. We watched The Bee Movie and made popcorn this afternoon!
I sewed more of the SIS’s today and started some of the nine patches. These are pinned together in stacks of 10 blocks. I won’t get any sewing done tomorrow, we are spending the day in Washington, D.C. with our friends!
I must be crazy because I decided to do Bonnie’s new mystery quilt on NYE even though I already have a mystery quilt scheduled with another group! I used this photo I took in my garden this past summer to pick colors from. I will be using random greens but the other colors will stay the same so it’s a more controlled palette.
I finally got done baking and cooking today and finished my prep work for a New Year’s Eve quilting mystery!
