Sorry for the late post. I don't have a newsletter today because I need another week to get the next batch of new fabrics ready so I'll share an update on my blue quilt. I also worked on the Red Sunset quilt yesterday but another photo would look much like the last photo. I'm also plugging away at the big blanket for Chris' friend.
I pulled out all of the dark blocks and laid them out in groups of 4 to sew together big blocks. This quilt is designed to be put together in rows of smaller blocks but I thought it would be easier to keep the block orientation right if I pieced them into 4-path blocks first. I need 36 of the large dark blocks and I was glad to see that I made lots of extras so I was able to replace a few bow ties that didn't have enough contrast for my liking.
Here are the first 6 blocks on the design wall. I'll keep plugging away at these this week. I really like it so far!
We also got a little snow yesterday. In the end it was a little more than this but just the right amount to be pretty but not bothersome.
