Need 8 more blocks...............


I was guessing yesterday when I thought I needed 5 more blocks.  It is actually 8 that I need.  I know this isn't the final layout but I think I am getting closer.   Seeing all of the blocks together I think I need more green blocks.  I may eliminate some that are on the wall if I make another batch of green blocks.  I would like to sew another 2 row section but I don't want to rush it and regret it later.  Maybe the white background Charley Harper blocks need to come out.  I think that next section (below the 2 sections that are sewn) needs more green. My goal is to have it sewn together by the end of the month so I have 20 more days.  I probably won't show it again for a few days and will get some cutting done for another project.


I ordered some of the new Kaffe collective fabrics and I'll photograph more today.  The one on the left is a Kaffe recoloring of an older fabric and it is lavender.  The middle is a new Philip Jacobs print and on the right is a new Brandon Mably print.  I ordered some quarter yard groups from Glorious Color because they are the only place I know that cuts straight quarters of Kaffe fabric.  Everyone else does fat quarters.

Arboretum supreme ! This is a quilt top has always me fascinated, and I like the light to white CH blocks too. Don’t take them out they add sparkle to it. I Ike your new fabrics especially the the floral, its so lovely.

I heard the TRACE ADKINS concert was sold out at the Fair last night , crowded all day.

Your Arboretum is coming together so nicely...I am still "dithering" about with my Melange (zipper) blocks...can't seem to get a handle on this smaller piece (5x60--I definitely don't want it any bigger so adding more isn't the answer--perhaps removing some? I shall see...hugs, Julierose

Good to know about the straight cuts vs fat quarters from that store. I just keep learning all kinds of things from you. And my current project which includes Kaffe's blue/purple huge chyrsanthemum fabric in large pieces is coming right along.

I just adore this quilt. The shapes, the colors, the arrangement- makes my knees weak.

Thought of you when I was at the Expo and several vendors had signs announcing the new collection.
