this is block 6 done (well almost ready for applique) I am 1/2 way there..I am starting to think about my boarders I love how they done their boarders in the pattern and I have some of the strips left from when I was working on my lone star quilt (still sitting on the quilt that needs to be finished quilting) so I am pretty sure I going to use them.
As you can see with the blocks I am trying to use as much variety of fabric as possible. I am trying to prove that you can use anything and it will still look lovely...it is more important to have different values of fabric (light/medium/dark) that is what really makes your blocks is the different values. I learned that long ago from the Quilts, Quilts, Quilts book.. how many of you ole' time quilters remember when that came out!! But it is an excellent resource book if you are afraid of color.
There is another great appliquer working on this project as well..she is using the red background and it just looks so awesome. Carrie she has a great title for her blog but i am keeping that a secret so that you can go look it...very much worth it.
The blogging world is very small..so I am finding out. I am so happy it is this way we can share everything and not have far to go.. in fact I have to go a lot farther for a cuppa tea!!
I love all your comments and really like to visit your blogs thanks in advance for those that I cannot visit due to anonymous. I know some friends visit that is not on blogger but I still like their company.
Have a great day.
