This week I managed to finish up the last 6 Grandma's blocks for one of my RSC16 projects! Here are last month's:
Maroon and red, plus a deep gold. I think this would be a great color scheme for an entire quilt, especially if you're a Harry Potter fan. Here are the ones for October:
Sunny yellow and orange! That gives a lot of life to any quilt.
Now that the blocks are done, you know what I had to do:
Yep, play with the block layout! This was the most fun I had all week. I think it's possible that this is the final layout, but I might play with it some more. That one lighter green one bothers me a little bit, but I think I'll keep it. In the actual quilt it will blend right in, even if it looks like a hole in the quilt in pictures.
So now I need to figure out some border options. Any ideas? I'm thinking maybe piano keys, but there is also my recent "modern" favorite of just a small, clean border, maybe with a colorful strip in between two lighter layers. I guess I'll have to play some more. Won't that be awful?
|Doesn't this look peaceful? Ahhh. . .|
Hope everyone has a great weekend. I had a lot of stress this week, so I'm hoping to relax a bit this weekend. Next week the asphalt guys are coming to fix the driveway, which won't be stressful at all, I'm sure, and the kitchen guys are also coming back. Piece of cake, right?
