What next for this little quilt to make it grow – seeing as there is a bit of white in the middle I thought I needed to add more white to draw it out more.
A close up of the white on white. I have come to realize that with all the fabric I discovered I had I found out that I have very little in the white prints.
You can see how the dining room and the long kitchen really extends the sewing area – the closet doors from the old sewing room are leaning against the wall ready to be taken out to the work shop and just around the side from them is where the sewing machine is – so it all really flows from area to area right now making for a large sewing area – with lots of windows! I am not getting in as many steps on my fitbit though as normally I walk from the sewing room to the kitchen to press and then back again – sometimes every 5 minutes or so when I am making a quilt at this stage and now it is so close together – I will need to watch that so I don’t get lazy on my walking.
I don’t know when I got this red fabric that I was pressing – I used to get “marbles” a lot – 1997 it says – is that the copyright year for the brand or that particular date for that piece of fabric? Is it really that old?
I added a piano key border and now what – it is 41 x 51 inches now – a little bit larger and it will be a couch size which would be a nice size to donate to a charity wouldn’t it. Maybe another white border sashing and then another blue with the red cornerstones and finish with another white – I don’t know I will look it over today and decide. Linking to My Quilt Infatuation today.
