Still catching up
These blocks were started with the encouragement of Judy from Patchwork Times. It was the Scrap Challenge of 2014. It was cancelled back in May and I decided to continue the fun.
I did a Prairie Queen block to add some orange and green. I also did this summer, two spool blocks more than shown in the pictures .
And then they were put away because the inspiration and the fun had fizzed out. Well, this week end, I decided to get it done NOW!
All that was missing were three 9-patch blocks. That's it!! I chose some blocks and out came the scraps and I sat down at the sewing machine and look, it is done!!
It was challenging to take pictures on Monday as it was very windy.
I am pretty happy with how it turned out. It is just a lap size quilt. I know it is asking for a border, but the thing is I don't know which colour it wants. As I am looking at the downloaded pictures, I think a beige and a green border would look good. Maybe? Too much? I know red would look good but I would like to keep it neutral. My intention is to give this one to a charity and if it is giving to someone in a wheelchair, I would like a man to be as happy about it as a woman would be. You know I mean? Maybe just beige border and a darker binding? Oh the possibilities!!!
Since I have other projects to work on, I will put this one on the back burner for the moment. We'll see what it has to say for itself in a little while.
Until next time .... SM;^)LE ... it's always possible.
