This has been a quietly productive week! I've made major progress on the crazy nine patch quilt I started back in October. After much hand wringing and changing of mind, I settled on a deep blue fabric with tiny red cherries for the sashing, but felt it needed a little something more. So, despite not having the first clue as to how to do it, I decided it had to have little red gingham corner squares.
I managed to devise a method, and amazingly, it worked! The squares actually line up with the blocks, and the whole thing is nice and flat. Its just the quilt top, and I am still deciding what the border should look like. Any suggestions would be very welcome, I think I've looked at it so long I'm not objective any more.
It looks neat from the back, too, with the sun shining through it...
And thanks go to my two Vanna's, who helped out by holding the thing up for its photo shoot...
I promised them they wouldn't be in the pics! Haha!
Wow, I just realized I didn't take any closeups, I'll try and do that tomorrow.
