A Little Progress

I trimmed up these blocks and headed back to the design wall.

I just didn’t feel like making more so I set about trying to find a better way to make them stretch. Anneke was right about the stripes being too distracting. I think this gray will work better.

Of course, I ran out. So I picked another gray print to use for those last two corners.

Last weekend, I saw a quilt on Instagram by @janettebinder that looked like a perfect way to use my leftovers so I cut those out while I was in the sewing room.

Hopefully I can get this top together today and in the frame. It would be nice to have a finish this week.

Have a great day!

    Starting a new quilt is fast always an adventure .We play and struggle with collar,
    fabric and pattern. But we like it and at the end we ( mostly) are happy with the result.
    What will we see tomorrow? Or the day after tomorrow?
    Good luck Katy. You know how to surprise! Great !

  2. Really nice blocks set against the gray and the little birdies (right?) in the two corners add a little something unexpected.

  3. The gray makes the blocks pop but also adds a calmness to the quilt. Why is it, when we find the best background, we often have not quite enough?? You made a good fix, though, which will add a little added fun to the quilt!
