I have finished Block 7 for I Wish You a Merry QAL…
This is the Poinsettia block, though I keep referring to it as a star. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out; I just really love this block. I think I might consider making three more to use in each corner of the 12-block quilt top, but that would mean dropping three of the other blocks. I will have to wait and see if I want to do that.
I have also been trying to figure out what to do with my collage cat. I have been auditioning different backgrounds for it, and trying to figure out exactly how I want it to end up. Right now, I’m leaning towards this…
But, I’m not entirely happy with the background…or the flowers at the top. I like the idea of the turquoise/aqua with the orange and black, but I'm terrible with color, so I'm not sure. I also have a solid light grey and a print turquoise/aqua fabric that I am considering. We have our final class Wednesday morning and I may just need to walk around the shop to see if any fabric jumps out at me. Part of the dilemma is deciding if I want it to be a simple project (without the flowers at the top), or the more embellished version. I guess I will make that decision Wednesday. Once that decision is made, I will spend some time this week (hopefully!) starting to quilt it.
The last item on my agenda this week is to finish up the crochet sunflower afghan. I am on the second to last border…
I can’t wait to get this done. Not in a bad way…I’m just excited to finish up this big project. Hopefully this will be shipped out in the next couple of weeks.
That’s it from here. The weather has finally turned fall-like, and I’m loving it! I have some things going on this week, but I should be able to spend some time on my projects as well.
I hope you all have a wonderful week!
