Slow Stitchin' Sunday!
Slow stitchin' here!! I finished these blocks I think in January...and they have been sitting there looking at me, and I at them. I had no idea how to set them together. I tried to set them together with my 6 inch nine patch blocks...nope! It made the whole quilt dark. Then...I tried alternate pieced blocks...nope!! Lost the flowers in that design. Then 1/2 square triangles...and that is all I saw!! So...I took my time and just asked my self...what do you want the quilt to look like?? Airy!! and light...with no heavy piecing. So...I designed this border and corner stone setting.
Lots of prep time here!! And lots of applique...but I am liking it!! Lord of the rings, in the land of the Elves...kind of viney like that!!
So....what are you working on? And are you going to do the Primitive Gatherings block of the week for summer?? Linda O. and I have been discussing it back and forth...and I think I am going for it!!!
Hope you have a wonderful Sunday, and find time for slow stitching!!
