Three things to be happy about:
(1) temperatures rising
(2) new movies
(3) red nail polish
I laid these out on my design floor, just tossing them down as I unpinned the 10-block groups. If I saw two that matched too closely I moved one, but you know what? I'm not going to start moving these around because it would take me half a day to get a perfect balance!
Just looking at the photo now I can see some dark spots but I won't worry about that.
I'm using these two fabrics for the borders, I thought a light inner border would give the eye a rest.
Or, maybe not...
This bluish-purplish border print fabric is a Jennifer Sampou that I've had for years!
I like it; it was tucked away in a cabinet, and that's probably why I hadn't used it by now.
Notice the peacocks in the border strip? My first thought was to cut it away and "save" it for later.
One little curious thing though - when I unfolded it all the way I discovered that at some point I had cut out big hunks, and part of the border was missing.
I started to put it back but then I thought to myself "why not use it? If not now, when??"
So, final decision - I'll use this fabric, some of the strips will have the peacocks and some won't.
I'll think of it as a design element!
That's it for now, sew forth and sew on til later...
