I do love these blocks. All stitched and pressed, they look scrappy and fresh.
One of my early ideas for the layout of these blocks was this (though the blocks in real life are lighter and less creamy than these).
The circles in the photo above are cut from fabric but for the blocks I laid out on the floor I cut circles from red paper. (I didn't want to waste good fabric, you know.) I don't know yet whether the quilt will get circles or not.
I hope to sew the blocks into a quilt top tomorrow and then let the top rest for 5 or 6 days while my daughter and grands are visiting. Then I'll deciee about the circles (or something else, or nothing else) next week.
The saying goes,
Stick to a task till it sticks to you.
Beginners many, finishers few.
Even when I have to push myself to finish something (and maybe especially then) I feel a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction. Do you, too?
