More Morrell blocks
Three more Morrell blocks completed.
One pieced, one appliqued and one broderie perse.
The first block has quite a few flying geese units. I haven't made many flying geese before. I think they will look better the next time I make them. There is a block coming up with even more flying geese so I hope they will look at bit more uniform.
I have ordered the background for my Roseville Album quilt. I chose a Kaffe spot. The colour is called water and is a pale green. Green is my favourite colour!
On Friday I spent the afternoon sewing with my DD. We sewed hundreds of beads and crystals on some bridesmaid dresses. Slow work, but very relaxing.
My Dresden plates are coming along.
I finished another one after I took that photo, so there are 6 now. I plan to make 12, then applique them to a very light coloured fabric and sash with the stronger colours. I am still deciding whether to use corner stones and whether to set the blocks on point. Its fun not following a pattern and making my own decisions as I go along.
I will get back to Tail Feathers and Jacobs Coat in the next few days.
Hmmmm....I may have a few too many projects going on at the same time! lol
It was a beautiful sunny, warm day here today. I spent a few hours in the garden this afternoon. A perfect day for the first day of Day Light Saving. The sun is just setting now and it is still warm outside. Spring has arrived! :)
