At this rate I should be finished with this one sometime in the timeless future. This UFO has called me for days. Yesterday I pulled the original blocks (not seen here) and boy are they shabby. I think they’ll work but I am considering placing them in the pile of un-sewing. I have a whole pile of blocks from another project that must be unsewn due to my ability to flake out entirely during the quilting process. I’m saving this pile for some evening soon.
Looking at it up on my wall makes me think it just might turn out pretty. I know that when I started this one I wanted pretty. I can see it. I love fabric. It’s so, so pretty! And this project has pretty floral buds in it. Oh so pretty.
I think the green makes it a little trendy and I don’t like that but I guess I let myself “go.” One of the reasons I like Reproductions so much is they’re meant to be old, Antique and not current or trendy. Of course I can get caught up in trendiness.
Check out my Klosjes from the Quilt Retreat on the right of Design Wall #2. The Klosjes are a trend that started oversee’s and I’m thrilled I joined in. I’m continuing on…
I learned when at retreat piecing is shabby, sorry and messy! I did my cutting before I left but there’s no help for it. My spools are a wreck when I’m out having fun. I’m using them anyway but I’ll quarantine them so I know what I’m piecing when I pull that quilt together.
Progress continues on the Rob Peter to Pay Paul blocks. They can be easily hand or machine pieced. Mostly I machine. Goes quicker and it’s a good skill builder.
