the skies above are clear again"...
at least til Monday, that's when we get more rain! That's too bad cuz my sister is coming for a visit til Friday, looks like rain all week :o*(
BUT... three things to be happy about:
(1) main course salads
(2) adopting one better habit
(3) recuperative strolls
Since I'm using my 6-1/2" GO die to cut the half square triangles, I make the pieces at least 7-1/2" square to make sure it'll fit the entire area. One thing I found out is, it's almost impossible to control where the seam line fits, as you can see in the piece above. When I made my cut, I only got just a sliver of that red fabric... I think all but a teensy tiny piece will be caught up in the seam.
I really liked Marei's comment about using red, so I tried a few and boy how it makes my pieces pop! Take a look at these two layouts I tried:
Because the pieces are so large, I'll be able to make a throw size in no time at all! For sure I'll need to follow a layout sheet, I had fun trying to get the one on the right lined up correctly - it took leaning my head way over to the side and closing one eye! Kinda pretty, though.
Well, that's part of what I've been up to, quilt wise. I find myself back in the position of having to clean my guest room so my sister will have some place to sleep - where'd all that clutter come from in there??? I definitely need a quilt studio!
Also, I'm behind on my Doodles BOM, I need to make three to catch up! And what about the Quilty Barn Along and the Hello Moon??
Have a great Friday, I might not blog again for a while but I'll still be scrapping behind the scenes. Sew forth and sew on til later!
