Still At It....






A little more progress to show today... Once I got the 12 blocks done and up on my design wall, I suspected that I would want to do more blocks. But first I pieced all the sashing strips and  added them to the mix. Yep, I decided it's "just not enough". It just wants to "be more"... Don't you agree?
Blocks and sashings are just roughly placed; they will be re-arranged before being joined...














So rather than twelve blocks (four rows of three) I'm going to go for twenty blocks, five rows of four. So I've been sewing my little heart out the last few days. I string-pieced 32 more triangles, and made the eight more nine patches. Yesterday I joined them all.... They still have to be trimmed/squared...















So now I just have to make 64 more flying geese units and cut the remaining light squares and rectangles to assemble the last sections of each block. Whew! I wish I could hire a "personal cutter".. you know how some people have their own personal shopper?? lol   Does anyone want to apply for the job?


Piece,
Linda

Linda, in the last up close picture I love the way you combined the subtlety of the delicate prints and the way the richness of the red looks beside them... they really compliment each other . Beautiful combination
