Valentine's day quilts - Emily and Shelby
I will pause while you finish your applause.
It was a long time coming, I know! What I liked about it was once I had all the pieces cut and some of them joined, it was mindless work I could do whenever.
But it is done now!
I cut 6 strips of brown for each stack.
This is the brown I will use for the sashing.
I poked around looking for pinks or reds for the cornerstone.
The brown is for the outermost borders and the reddish stripe for the inner borders.
That left the blackish red for the cornerstone fabric and I didn't like it.
Later, I found a much better red which was hiding but not sure I had enough of that.
Yes, I did feel a little guilty as a matter of fact. BUT this fabric began with another fabric which I used in a different project and then transferred to this box at the end of that project. PLUS this project has been stalled since 2010, hey you snooze you lose fabrics around here!
I cut two strips of this for each quilt. Now tomorrow I can start sewing them. Well, after swimming, my dentist appointment and some tutoring! Life is full and fun lately.
