Sorry for the late post today. The kids are all coming home for our postponed Christmas get together. Karl ended up coming home early and got me started watching Man for High Castle. Amazingly, now that I cross stitch again, I’ve been watching a bit of television. So far, only two episodes in, I love this. Sad part…Hubby will hate it.
Anyway, while I’m cooking and hanging out with the kiddos. This is what’s waiting for my attention in the upcoming week.
I got Friday’s mystery clue done and have a good start on the Sunday clue.
These are all cut out and the first seam is finished. I have some pressing to do before I get to that.
I have my yellow strips cut and ready to be segmented in squares and then it will be time for block assembly.
On Friday of last week I went into a little panic. I’ll be honest. I didn’t pay a lot of attention to the colors we needed. I knew I was getting fabric from Whittles. I clicked the button for the Civil War bundle without really paying attention. Then Friday I looked at my fabric box and saw LOTS of pink left. Hmmmm… Well that’s when I discovered that the pink was supposed to be my “lavender”. UGH. I was going to go back and redo all of the four patches with lavender but now that I see the finished quilt, I think I am going to be okay.
What do you think?
Right now my plan is to sew one block together and see what it will look like.
I will have pink where Friday’s clue called for lavender but only in the hour glass blocks. At this point all of this isn’t bothering me a bit. I can change it if I don’t like it…All’s good after all there will be a zillion different looking quilts by the time they are all finished. I am eager to see my friend Connie’s. She’s using black for a background.
To see what others are working on, check out Patchwork Times. I’m off to throw the ham in the oven.
I think it will be just fine and it will be your version. I look forward to seeing your first block. I think this is a mystery I will get done since the colors look so great together.
I think it will look great–a little more color depth.
Careful with throwing that ham! :)
I think you will be just fine. I love the colour palette. I was tempted by the civil war version, but in the end I went with the brights.
I am really looking forward to seeing your block finished. The fabrics are lovely
