IF you ever get a bright idea to do something like this ...
... lay down until the feeling passes!!!
This is Orphan Block Project #2 with some of the orphan blocks given to me. Its mostly pieced together now, definitely not going to be flat. I pity the longarmer who agrees to edge to edge quilt this. I'm hoping a good press with starch will help.
But for now, I'm stumped. Originally I'd thought of a red strippy background to use up some of my red/purple scraps.
Too dark? Something's not right.
So then I tried putting scraps from the few low volume or neutral fabrics I have in my stash. It does nothing for me.
I've got lots of green strips but I don't like this either. A jealous heart? No
I'd really hoped to use up some of my scrap fabric but it looks like I'll need to go to the fabric store.
Any suggestions - brighter colors? Whites/creams? Polka dots?
I'm supposed to be getting over a summer cold, working on quilt sleeves and labels, applique on LE but you can see I'm putting it off this week. Next week, yes, definitely back to work next week.
Until next time, Mayleen
