En Provence Progresses Slowly

En Provence – October 8, 2017

I am slowly making progress on En Provence. You can compare my progress to the previous post’s picture.

I was able to spend time working on it on Saturday night and some of the day on Sunday. I was able to add a short row vertically on the right and put together a row that I will be able to add to the top soon.

You might be wondering why this piece is taking me forever. I haven’t yet put together blocks, so I have to put the blocks together before I can put together the rows. I need to watch placement of the fabrics. While the piece is scrappy, it is not a charm quilt and I’d like to keep like fabrics away from each other as much as possible.

This quilt definitely has fewer colors than I like, but the controlled palette really enhances the curved look of the piecing. I am so pleased with how this piecing is looking that I can’t stop looking at it. That surprises me since it is just a pattern, not much original.

  1. I saved your previous post on this quilt. It’s exciting to see your progress. I LOVE the background fabrics of black and white print. I understand what you mentioned about the controlled palette. I also love more fabrics in a quilt. As you said, the curves really do show. Bravo, Jaye!

    1. This is the fourth quilt (at least) in which I have used the black and white or text prints as the background. I really like the look as long as I am careful to use prints that don’t feel too heavy. I am on the edge with some of the prints in this quilt which is one reason I am placing the various units carefully.

      Thanks for your kind words.
