Hi Lestrong601- glad to "see" you. I have been fuddling around and think I have found a block! It will have to wait to be made as I am headed to my mom's for a week. Won't be able to sew as we are cleaning out her home (stuff) as she prepares to move in with my brother.
It is going to be a hard week - going through 50+ years of "stuff" to weed it down to the keepers.
Dragonfly Nana, I don't envy you the next week. I had that pleasure about a year and a half ago with my Mom. Hers was only 21 years. Enjoy the time with her.
Hi, legstrong. Glad to meet ya! Trust me when I say it takes no time at all to get used to paperpiecing...
Dragonfly Nana...I will cheer you on from the beach in Galveston!!!!
So this is the pattern that I picked out: http://quilting.about.com/od/quiltpa...uilt-Block.htm
I am attaching a picture of the fabrics I picked out. Can you help me match which fabrics from the pattern will go with what fabric from my choice? Thank you so much
Those are gorgeous. I like the idea of the black as the focus (center fabric) and the grey as the background.
If you use the teal for the small points it is going to sort of blend with the grey and the black and purple are going to take center stage.
If you use the purple for the small points then the teal is going to pop more.
Whatever you choose it is going to be a beautiful center.
Well, Nexxus...that does pose a challenge. I think I would color this pattern with colored pencils using the c olors in different areas first to see how it will look. I'd do it, but I don't have anything with me while on vacation.. however, seems like you have three light fabrics, and a dark. This will definately be challenging......
The colors are fantastic. That teal reminds me of water...it has so much movement!!!
Just checking in....
How is everyone doing on centers? Can't wait to see what we will be working on.
Nexxus...should finish removing paper from mine and plan to mail this weekend!
I love everyone's fabric so far.
Hi all. Alikat I can't believe you are done already-good for you.
I haven't started yet as I have another one that I have to finish and sewing has been at a minimum since I got back from my mom's.
Wooohoooo I just now need to get moving with my center
