Like Lynn, I am using Moda's Midwinter Reds to make my quilt, but I have also decided to add applique to the centres of some blocks. Here you can see I have already done that to two blocks, and have another one
ready. Actually I have about 4 ready on thinking about it, but those blocks are too modest to show themselves in public until they are properly dressed! My original plan was to applique all the block centres, but I have changed my mid and will just do some, which will be placed fairly randomly throughout the top. (Well, as randomly as a control freak can do!) Have I mentioned recently that I LOVE this pattern and these fabrics?
Much as I want to carry on with these today, I really MUST get back to my Country Charmer quilt.
I am one of the people who asked Lesley, who has been running this QAL, to continue, and have the final show of quilts at the end of November, as I have slipped behind a bit. I was ready to add the borders to mine, when I decided to go off-piste with them, which meant that I needed to buy more fabrics. I bought some while I was in the US last month, and then I bought some more yesterday, so I really have no excuse now for not getting the top finished.
On thinking about it, I also need to get my Christmas Challenge quilt finished too.
Now for some housekeeping. If you hover over my photos now, you will see that a handy-dandy bright red "P" (P for Pin it) button pops up. I had blocked pinning for some time as I had concerns about copyright issues, but it seems that Pinterest have changed their T & Cs now, so I am happy for anyone to pin from my blog, but please, respect copyright and credit my blog if you do so. Thank you.
