So, this week I am working on the Roman Floors blocks.
|Oh, how I miss the fence!|
I need 72 and have about 30 now. I also got a really beautiful black batik to use for a thin sashing between the blocks. Here's where I need your help: I can't decide if I want a 1/2-inch sashing or a 1/4-inch sashing. Here's the 1/2 inch:
I measured and that is a half-inch between the blocks. The blocks are large, so it could work, but it looked too big to me, so I tried it with a quarter inch:
I like this better, but I'm not sure how well it fits with those big blocks. What do you think? Maybe I'll just split the difference and go with 3/8-inch sashing.
Boring pictures, I know! But while I was fooling around stitching the (many) hsts for the blocks, I decided to try another block based on this floor:
I did it in pink, not orange, but this is what I came up with:
I like this a LOT. I think I made the center square too big, though, so I need to try it again with a slightly smaller center. It's hard to see, but there is a wrinkle where I pressed the bottom left triangle away from the square, which is what leads me to believe it's too big. But it was fun and easy to make, so that's a plus.
Anyway, that's what I've been up to this week. I'd love to get this floors quilt done, because I think it's going to look spectacular. Plus, I'll be wanting something cozy to cuddle up in later this year, won't I? It really will stop being hot sometime, won't it? Hope springs eternal!
Hope you get some good stitches in this week! See you Friday!
