Judy from Judy in the Dyes was kind enough to nominate me for You Make My Day Award. The ideas is to nominate ten more people. Since so many of you have already been nominated (and, also, I'm very lazy about this kind of thing) I'll just say that if you read this you are nominated. That includes the hundreds of lurkers who drop in regularly. My sitemeter says there are usually 250 to 300 page views per day, so there are a lot of you out there.
I have spent the last couple of days choosing fabric and cutting pieces for this quilt from the new book by Karla Alexander that I got on our Boxing Day spree. When I first cut them out I wasn't sure I liked the colors but now that some of them are put together I'm feeling better about them. The blank spaces will be filled with blocks tipping the opposite way with the oranges on the inside and greens on the outside. I only had time to finish one.
I'm not sure what color I will use for the border. I have lots of the orange and the beiges. I don't think I'll use the beige but the orange might be all right. If I can match the dark blue in the center blocks I'd like that with a narrow orange inner border. I have a big piece of dark blue but it's probably not the right shade. Drat, I may have to go fabric shopping again.
