Well, Happy Monday morning. I have really been pushing on working on the 14 blocks for SAG. The Fabrics I selected range from greens through blues through turquoise and lights! My goal was to use different fabrics for each block. I THINK I may be running to a problem on that goal! Each block requires fabric audition to ensure placement of the darks, medium darks, medium lights, and lights (sometimes she through in a zinger which can be difficult to select). Making a one color using dark, medium and lights would have been easier, but I am enjoying the challenge. I tend to learn with each quilt I make and those that I will make down the road.
I have completed 6 blocks, and have 2 blocks with “tentative” fabric selections. I like to select fabrics that “I think” will look good in the evening and then re-check my sanity the next morning! LOL – anyone else do that? All blocks are 12 1/2” unfinished.
This block had issues! I had problems with my fabric selection for the green star and then realized that I needed to redo the flying geese (the blue and green one). I chose to take the block apart and change the corners around. I could have made a new block faster, but chose to just rip and redo and it came out better than the original one. This is why you see where I had seam allowances already sewn.
This was another block that I had to change fabrics. The zinger I originally selected BOMBED! I prefer the lighter green swirled. The pattern called for some of the zinger fabric to be on each corner. I felt that the dark green would make it look better and it did!
I am enjoying the entire process, but darn if Mr Meniere’s and Mr Fibro didn’t show up today after my walk! Cool front blowing in along with high winds – killers for M&F together!
Going to make a short run to HEB for groceries and then back to the Studio. Hopefully I can get 2 more blocks completed in spite of M&F (good acronym for them).
Have a great week and hopefully a quiet Monday!
