Good Morning to All.
I do hope everybody had a wonderful Christmas full of love and laughter.
With four days off, I had plenty to do, but wasn't going to get away without spending just a little time in the fun room. This is what's on my design wall at the moment.
Not the best pix - sorry
Again, most of the darks are scraps from my Cathedral Window quilt, which if you are keeping track, I now have 306 of the 396 blocks ironed into shape.
I did supplement it with a few others for a little more of a scrappy look. Then I had fun picking out the creams. I was surprised at how difficult it was to find a true cream color and not a greyish off-white. One thing I discovered is that it is a bit difficult to figure out just what size the finished quilt will be upon finishing it. I usually do my math before I begin cutting.
I did attempt and came up with a figure - we'll see how close I came:)
I just started cutting the little trapezoids. The finished 'trap' is 3 inches top to bottom. I cut about 540 of them and figured I can cut more if needed. Also, I will be putting a brown boarder around it so it will be a little larger due to that.
I began sewing my lights to darks and of course, had to set a few up on the wall to see. I think it will be one of those comfy looking quilts that makes me want to curl up with a cup of tea and take a nap by the fire. I am so anxious to keep going on it and see just how it turns out.
Have a beautiful three day work week and keep stitchin'.
Until next time,
Nimble Fingers & Even Stitches
