    My center patch is finally finished, moving on to seing the braids.
    I do need some Poitiers on making my circles nicer. I'm thinking I might have Ben better off doing a hexagon.

    If I didn't have this many matching colors, how would it look in rainbow 30's prints?

    So Far, So Good

    I have to say I'm pleased with how this ombre fabric worked. Made selecting fabrics so much easier (and faster).

    I had a problem with the center square by not doubling checking my math before cutting strips but happy with the "mistake". The pinwheel center was supposed to be one big pinwheel but I had cut up all the pink fabric into 2" strips so didn't leave enough to make a bigger pinwheel. In hindsight, though, I wish I would have pieced a tiny maroon square into the dead-center of that block.

    I think I'm going to add about a 3" border in the maroon and bind in the same color. Not sure what I'm going to put on the back yet.

    At least I can say I'll bust about 2 yards of fabric from my stash when done.

Now I did my strips 2 1/2" because I had them already in my scraps and I'm trying to use them up. One strip is only 2", LOL I really wanted to use that piece and that's all I had of it.

    Now that I'm done with half of it, I realize it's going to be way to long for any table that I have so I think I'll turn this one into a small quilt.

    I am so glad that we have 3 days to work on these because now i have to start over and try to find colors for a smaller version. Here's what I did this morning.
    Looks great! PP is lots of fun once you get used to doing it. I might do something PP'd in my next one and plan my fabric better so I have enough. LOL

    You've also given me some inspiration on making a neutrals for my step daughter. Wasn't sure how it would turn out but you gave me some ideas of color choices.

    I'm not using the suggested variation of colors. I'm using a fat eights bundle I had and I'm loving how it looks. It's bright and cheery. I will have to pick up fabric for the backing.

    I'm so excited, the first half of my runner is done!

    Before I go any furthermore , my center square looks a little plain should I add something else to it?

    Wait till you quilt it, you can do some decorative stitches in the center when quilting it. I would do a box around that circle in the center, just one or even two rows of stitching in the center would give that a huge punch great job

    The colors dont have to match. You may do what ever makes you happy. I personally like matching, but that is me. A rainbow of 30's prints would be nice I think. Just start with either side of the rainbow and go through to the other.
    Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet.
