Two different designs are used in a total of sixteen blocks. Both designs are surrounded by pebbling.
|It took 45 minutes to pebble around this swirly design.|
The pebbling is microscopic...I may need new eyeballs by the time I'm done!
Completing each block was taking way too long....I wanted to see progress by the end of the day, so I decided to do the scary (for me) part first...the outlines...and come back for the pebbling.
By the time I reached the last row, I'd become more accurate and my lines were much smoother.
|It helped to actually mark the echo line and swirls, and not just wing it.|
|First two flowers.|
Okay, but I knew I could do better!
The light was not good for photos by the end of the day, so no more for now.
End result? Six of sixteen blocks complete. Only 8 more hours of pebbling and I'll be done!!!!!!
Last night our Modern group met and started working on scrappy slabs inspired by Cheryl Arkison's technique in Sunday Morning Quilts.
Don't they look great together?
We took piles of scraps, sewed things together, squared as we went, and aimed for (roughly) 15 inch blocks. Each of us will use our own blocks, so will square to our own desired dimensions.
Off to finish Irish Lass...See you in about 8 hours!
