A Few Changes


This started out having the blue in the middle but didn't end up quite like that. I am pretty well satisfied with this one and I'll probably sew it together before I start messing with it again. I may need to mark each piece somehow (sticky notes? chalk?) before I start so they won't get mixed up. Since hand dyed fabric is reversible it's going to be easy to make mistakes.
I added some rick rack to the other one. I think I'll make some more blocks for it. It's a lot of fun and is using up some scraps. I may end up spending a week arranging this one too, since there a multitudes of ways. I already see a brown horizontal line in the middle that I don't like.

Hi Aunt Joyce
I like marking my blocks with little sticky note pages. It seems to work well with a pin here & there to hold them.

I knew you would come up with something wonderful. I really like this one. Glad to know I'm not the only one that messes up the order of blocks as I take them from the design wall to my sewing machine.

Oooh...the hand dyeds look terrific. I love the red towards the outside of the quilt.

And the strippy one: FUN! Makes me want to go strip...I mean, SEW! lol

Happy Saturday!

PS. Snow again up your way? I vote *no wind.* You're with me?
