Slowly working on Section 9 presently.
I had to change out two of the strips which follow down the
length of the quilt, just breaking for blocks here and there.
The strips on the RH side above were the originals but I wasn't
happy with how they looked, I kept the two narrow middle strips
but added different fabrics either side along
with another strip element and a bordered
pinwheel block directly below.
It's really important to keep in mind which fabrics are
going to hit each other, something you think will work well
doesn't when you actually get the pieces on the wall.
You can see some of the top part of the quilt below,
I don't stitch the individual elements together until I have everything
for that particular section up on the wall, so you'll be seeing threads and
pieces which need trimming.
Taking me away from the machine were two new books
as different as chalk and cheese, as you can
see from the covers, but both beautifully presented.
I'm setting aside some time to sit and read through the
Judy Newman book, or a good part of it, this weekend.
