Earlier today I finished sewing the blocks for this
Red and Pink 16 patch quilt I am making.
I arranged them on my Design Wall and took a
black and white photo of the arrangement.
This one block REALLY stood out,
so it was removed.
Here are the results:
I've often thought about how quilting allows for colors and patterns to be
placed together that wouldn't ordinarily go together.
Can you imagine wearing some of these fabrics in the same outfit?
They play so nicely in the quilt, though.
I am pleased with how this is coming along.
Tonight I sewed half of the blocks together.
The blocks are 6" finished, so the top will be 48" square.
I thought about placing them on point,
but I love the simplicity of the straight set blocks.
An applique border is coming to mind,
but I may just quilt it and bind it.
This week I have Knitting to show!
I was on a bus trip and had time to finish these
orange socks I started a while ago.
This is "Fable" yarn from Nordicmart.
It knits up nicely and feels very soft.
I started a green pair, too.
Doesn't this yarn scream spring?
I am so ready!
Happy Quilting and Knitting!
