I made really good progress over the weekend. I had only a few seams to sew in order to finish half of the quilt. The quilt is starting to look like something!
You might remember that I finished the first quarter not that long ago and kind of got on a roll.
I have had to cut a lot of blues and greens for the border, so that is taking time, but at least I can do a few at a time in between everything else.
Looking at this half makes me think that I might have to work on another one of these. I would like to see the framework of the red diamonds more filled in. On the other hand, if I used more red, would the Sawtooth Stars (check the middle, right under the red square) show up? Perhaps fabric with less contrast? Red and pink or orange and yellow? I’ll have to play around.
I also need to work on the border of a new version. This border is ok, but not great. Not sure why, but it isn’t doing much for me.
