Drunkard's Path, bloom, and catalog.........

I am attempting to clean off the tables in my main floor studio and these blocks were in there.  This is half of the blocks and I just wanted to see what they look like on the design wall.  I will probably take them down again because I'm not sure what I want to do with them.




My first Dahlia bud is starting to open.  When it gets totally open I'll hold a yardstick next to it so you can see the size.  It is supposed to be a Dinner plate Dahlia so I'm expecting it to be big. 

I added 8 more fabrics to my "page" on the right sidebar of my blog: Kaffe Fassett fabric catalog.

Boy, I never find treasures like that when I clean off my floor- just usually dust bunnies and slivers of fabric! The rain has helped some of my flowers-especially the Endless Summer Hydrangeas and sunflowers.

Those are pretty drunkard path blocks. I look forward to seeing your dinner size dahlias.

LIKE the way you are cataloging your fabric!

Wanda, do you have a standing order for a certain amount of each new Kaffe print, and do you keep a snippet of each one? I first learned about Kaffe Fassett in the early 1990's when Ehrman published his needlepoint designs. I made one (about 6 x 6). It nearly put my eyes out back then. I'd go crazy trying to stitch from a chart now.

Your DP circles are promising. I'd make enough blocks to fill in the empty spaces and sew them together.

I really like how you've put those Drunkard's Path pieces together. I'd love to have you here in my sewing room for a while just to get your input! You're the best!

Love the Drunkards Path,me specially the fabrics.
It surprised me that your first dahlia is opening. I don't grow them although my neighbour does and I think his have started to bloom. It seemed you were always ahead. Maybe the fall blooms are different. They are beautiful.

I LOVE the scrappy DP! I hope you change your mind and decide to do something with that, I just know you'll make something spectacular out of it!
