Despite my feverish brow, I have been doing a little bit of this:
|Pandas, deer and liberty. It's a cuteplosion.|
I'm loving these granny squares - they're quicker than you'd think to put together. I have now made the effort to use a scant 1/4" seam, so these blocks are roughly the same size as the ones I have from Mila + Cuatro (unlike this one), and with a bit of wiggling and squidging with the sashing, they should fit together.
Here they are all on the design wall. No judging the photo - my design wall is a king sized sheet pinned up in our narrow and poorly lit hallway. Taking a photo of it is a nightmare! But I figured you should see it, in the interests of full disclosure.
My blocks are the top far left, top far right, second row far left, third row middle and bottom row middle. Sarah did the rest. I have gone for a totally scrappy look rather than trying to blend too much, given how different all the fabrics are - although I have stuck with lighter colours to balance out Sarah's darker blocks. I like the mix. I think I'm going to sash it up with really wide white strips and then maybe do some patchwork squares on the border. What do you think?
And because you guys all seem to care about BQF's Reunion chevron quilt more than what I've been up to, here is her finished quilt top. My feelings aren't hurt one bit by that. Nope.
I know, it's awesome, right?! I'm not the least bit jelly. (That's a jelly roll pun - you can groan now).
Linking up to the mid-week linky parties. Howdy visitors!
