First up, I definitely moved forward all of my goals from last week. No, I didn't post my goals last week but I still had a list and have been able to place a check after each item. Here's one batch of blocks that is almost a quilt top. I took this picture to see if I like the blue green stripe fabric for small borders. (I'm thinking maybe 3".) This will be a donation quilt to a senior organization or nursing home. I've pretty much decided to use the striped green. (You really can't tell here that it is a series of very fine stripes.) Color is okay with most of the blocks. What do you think? And, what should I use for the binding. I don't have any more of the dark brown. I do have the darker teal between the center column of 9" blocks. Or should that be the border??? Never thought of that til now.
I won these "lotto" blocks at least a year ago. My entry did not get included because most of the blocks were browns, oranges, teals and beige. Mine was a smaller version of the upper right corner -- purple and white stripes on a white background. Um, no -- definitely did not go with the rest. I made 4 more blocks to go with the rest.
A couple of weeks ago I went down to my Powhatan guild meeting to make angel ornaments. My first one is done. Don't tell anyone but I'm making them for 2 of the grands for their annual Christmas ornament. Not sure about what to make for the other 2 grands. But isn't this one darling?
I decided she looked a little different hanging, as she will be on a Christmas tree. I actually hung her from a loop on a cushion on my dining room chair. Cute, cute, cute! I've got 2 more to do. I haven't decided if I want to make the next 2 in golds and another fabric or whether I want to find some cute Christmasy fabric. I'm hoping I can make the wings look a bit smoother but it is what it is.
I'm moving right on to my goals from last week.
