Finally, a day of sunshine after a run of sleet and snow days!
The last full day of the Rock Island Retreat was devoted to Driftwood.
And I successfully completed the 42 blocks needed for the throw size.
As is, it will measure 48 x 56. I'm thinking I might want to make it a little bigger -- either more blocks or a border. In any case, I need to put the blocks on my design wall to make sure I'm happy with the arrangement and to make sure I don't have the same fabric next to itself. With luck, I will be able to put it together at Devo and Sew on Tuesday.
Before that, though, I need to put away the Christmas decor stacked on the dining table and cut my fabric for a class block before Tuesday. I have beef stew going in the crock pot so no more kitchen time will take away from sewing time today.
I just love this designReplyDelete
I love the variety of light fabrics that you used. Yours is prettier than the pattern photo.ReplyDelete
What a lovely piece! The colors are fantastic and love the black accent! Sounds like you were having a perfect day!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous, I may have to get that pattern. Beef stew in the crockie sounds delicious.ReplyDelete
Beautiful pastels! They make for a very striking quilt. Congrats on getting all the blocks made.ReplyDelete
I like the 'spangled' effect of those triangles. Great design!ReplyDelete
