Because I do so much by hand and work on numerous projects I always feel like I have little progress to report – but I did get two more granny squares done and the wall is looking full – I ran to Hobby Lobby yesterday and got the flannel I need to extend my design wall to the floor so I will work on that today and I picked up a couple more boxes for the fq’s as well and they are now all in the pretty boxes. The block on the left is kind of crazy looking with the colors I picked out –
But once it is on the wall with the others – to me it looks just fine with a little rearranging I can get 8 blocks across I think – maybe 7 rows long? not sure on that we will see – right now I am aiming for 8 across x 8 down – queen size no sashing – I might change my mind on that and do a narrow dark color sashing and see what that gives me –I have a batik charcoal or a fairly dark blue batik that I could use – sashing maybe at 1 inch? like I say I am thinking about it. If I do sashing it might be 7 x 7 in rows. (and no dent in the 2 1/2 inch strip scrap box so far!!)
The 5th diagonal line on Diamonds are Forever is completely attached and pressed.
And I think I forgot to show the first corner completed on Floral Fantasy – this was finished last week and I am working on the second corner.
