I am feeling better. I was very lazy last week and now I have to get busy. We had guild meeting Saturday. Jeanne and I were hostesses for refreshments. She brought the fixings for yogurt parfaits and I made banana muffins, iced tea, and orange juice. It was nice to see everyone and see their show and tell. I took the pink 4 Patch Stacked Posies to show. They want me to have a class and show them how to do it. Yup, it's contagious. Can't even get near one I'm telling you; so look out!
Here's a picture of the 4PSP I'm making with the fabric I posted sometime back. I showed my Wednesday group the method of 4PSP using that fabric. This weekend I sewed the blocks and then I tried a different setting. I need some comments. What do you think? My husband tells me he's not sure. He thinks I need a lighter color to border the blocks before I put them with the polka dots. I like this setting but I'm thinking that the kaliedoscope effect is getting lost. Maybe the green with pink polka dots needs to go and be replace with a lighter color. Please, please give me some insight!
I plan on putting nine of these blocks together and bordering with focus fabric for a baby quilt. I have 51 more blocks and will probably make another baby quilt and throw.
I hoed in the garden this morning for a few hours. We got a tiller but the grass grew too quick and the tiller is having a hard time with the grass. So I will do it the old-fashioned way. Hoeing and pulling. I am making progress. Only half of it has a lot of grass in it anyway. Good exercise for me! I am going to sew some more of the blocks after a shower -- ewwww! and I'll see you later.
