Making good progress on my current projects during the summer is slow but steady. Having to do garden kitchen duty can take up a lot of time. Fresh yummy veggies for supper time is so worth it though.
I did finish the bride block on my Civil War Bride quilt. I think she turned out pretty good. I didn't want the quilt to be too bright OR too dull in color. I'm happy with how it is starting out.
Can you believe this is going to be THE GROOM block!
This is how I usually audition fabrics and such for whatever I'm working on. I pin and poke, roll and smoosh fat quarters and such to my design wall. Stand back and stare, make some changes if needed.
Stand back and stare some more. I do this until "I think" I'm satisfied. Of course I always reserve the right to make MORE changes in the end. I think this Groom block is headed in the right direction.
This is another block from the Civil War Bride quilt I started. I'll work on this one while I still play and audition fabrics for the Groom block. I really like the blue fabric. Wish I had bought more of it.
I'm still plugging along on my Friends of Baltimore too. Starting on a new block with this cute little cornucopia. Working on more than one project at a time keeps it interesting for me. I think it's need for long term projects.....at least that's the way I roll anyway.
As for Goober....my little helper
It's just another day at the office for him.
