Busy Wednesday

Yesterday morning I visited the house where the donated fabric for the QOV quilts lives.  I chose some more groups to cut for next week.










I am looking for 4 values from dark to light in colors that aren't glaring together. 

From there I traveled to a friend's house where the ladies I used to work with were meeting for lunch.  After I got home from visiting Dad last night I started working on the QOV projects again. 
I made a little progress on both of them.  This is a great project to work with while I decide which quilt of my own to start or maybe which one to finish.  I like to always have something to sew on.

I love that cream with stripey brown circles & squares. (You wanna trade for something new?)

The last photo is great, I knew you would come up with something that looks special, as these quilts are such a gift of kindness and gratitude.

"Oh WOW" as my youngest grandson would say. He just turned a year now and everything new or exciting to him he says "Oh WOW". And I know he would agree with me on the beginnings of these two pieces.

I really like the groups you have laid out for us to see, on the color values. I print out those photo's to refer too.

I love how you've taken the strings and combined them with the beige to make such a statement! Just beautiful.
