Earlier this week, I got to go to V's house. Wow, I think every city dweller needs a house away from all the chaos. There were trees and greens in the garden and quiet nights (and mornings and afternoons) and sandy shores not too far away and grassy design walls.
I took these three blocks I won in the block of the month raffle at the guild meeting last month. I thought they'd be great in a summery/4th of July/Americana table runner for my entryway. But we also played with V's fun stash. This was my favorite:
Isn't it great??? In the end, I decided the traditional look would fit my entryway better, but oh . . . I still question giving up on all that lovely color!
Here's a close up of the pearl cotton quilting I've started, also inspired by V.
We tossed my scrap blocks on a bunch of different fabrics.
What fun! Good to just play around. Good to start the juices flowing with possibility. Good to get away for a day. Thanks V!
p.s. Check out her project for the day here.
