I guess I haven't exactly given up on this project.
I am actually enjoying these little blocks again, and while working exclusively on my Singer Featherweight -- my Janome is still away being cleaned and repaired -- and with lots of demands on my time, the blocks make perfect little projects for the hours after the little one's bedtime. I have a few major projects in the wings, including a king-sized quilt and curtains I am planning for my parents, and a few quilt-tops that are waiting to be quilted, but until my Horizon is back in circulation these are on hold. So on I plod.
I have tended to work on colour-themed batches of FW blocks, and this time around the blocks are linked by white-and-yellow prints.
Here is block 54, Kitchen Woodbox. Frida loves the balloon-holding bunnies in this one:
Block 55, Linoleum, which reminds me of the green-and-blue speckled linoleum I had in my bedroom when I was little:
Block 56, Maple Leaf (oh Canada!):
Block 33, City Girl's Puzzle -- a remake of the Farmer's Puzzle block from the book, which had too much resemblance to a technicolour swastika to remain as-is:
And finally block 31, Evening Star:
I have some choices to make, and I would love suggestions! More blue? More green? More orange? Throw caution and planning to the wind, and just choose fabrics block-by-block and see what happens??
Happy weekend to all, and I'd love to hear your thoughts.
i think this looks great so far. i wouldn't change the direction at all. just keep on sewing!
You're doing great! Keep doing what you're doing - it's working!
Oh wow, look at you go! So happy to hear that you are enjoying making these blocks again, because they look amazing together!! It's going to be a HUGE quilt when you are done!
they are looking great all together!
