last week was busier for showings, but I still got some work done on projects!
it actually surprises me how much this actually looks like brick in the picture!
this has been fun as each one has given me a new challenge in getting the "look" I want
looking at the picture of this gives me that "did I do that?" chill -- it looks very like the vision in my head
today I plan to trim this piece and get it ready for quilting
I can put together 6 "blocks" in an hour --- setting them in with all those "Y" seams takes a bit longer, but I'm very pleased with how this looks
we decided to make a stop in our local quilt shop to take another look at the fabric
one of the good things about this shop is that they cut fat quarters of both the challenge fabric and the coordinates so you don't have to buy a whole yard of the stuff
it also has no problem with you spending a long time putting pieces of fabric side by side to try out ideas
in the end I only bought a fat quarter of this fabric, and I plan to cut it in very small pieces to be part of the decoration on these lovely onion domes
yesterday the DH spent quite a while working with different onion dome shapes and arrangements and this is the one that I decided I would do
looking forward to starting on this project ---- as soon as the piece for Sacred Threads is finished!
