Kept walking past this little log cabin block that got orphaned through an unfortunate quilt design accident and suddenly decided to put it within a small wall quilt. I was even determined to finish it completely, so did hand quilting and a label:
So does this count as a Finished Flimsy for the Challenge (logo at right) even though it's only 11" square? Oh OK, I guess not.
Did a Dear Jane block:
You know how zandsfabrics wraps your purchase in a thick fabric bow? That's what the red and cream stripe is from.
These Stars Around the Garden blocks are going OK. I'm not worried about them:
It's the other set. What a mess. I really spent some time agonizing over these blocks. I looked at them. I hated them. I studied Pennsylvania German quilts in my books. I considered not making any more of these and doing only the group above.
I decided that it might help if I imitated the Nearly Insane setting. It looks like that quilt has tan sashing and red cornerstones.
Devised a tan-and-red plan on EQ:
A Whimsical Hand-Dye by Whimsicals for Four Corner Designs from A.E. Nathan. I need more of this. Does anybody have some of this that they would like to sell?
Also from stash:
Isn't this an incredible print? I had just enough of this to fussy-cut the cornerstones. Does anybody know what this fabric is?
Decided not to use any more red or pink in future blocks. Made the next block in the series and tossed it all up on the design wall:
The setting color scheme is fantastic. Maybe I'll keep the setting and dump the blocks :-) .
The kitten is so adorable, full of energy now that her leg/hips feel better. She still doesn't have a name, unless you consider "you big imp-head get out of that" a name.
