Back in the Saddle of Sewing and Blogging and Surfing and Posting and up bleary eyed to check the morning email status...(am I mad?)
Thank you to those who did think of me and my enforced leave of absence - here is something for you:
Some More + and X blocks!
and Some MORE!
Which Have Turned Into THIS!!!!!!!
It has been on my bedroom floor for a few days now - I like to stand on its edge and stare and stare and smile and smile. I can't actually describe how pleased I am with it. With myself for creating it. This is pretty big on the 'I Made That!' list in my head.
I wanted a bit of an interesting border, without taking any focus off the blocks - A very lovely Dark Grey with Bright Yellow Spot - from Soiree by Paula Prass (initially bought for my AMH Hexagons) paired with a very subtle but oh so intriguing Soft Grey Alexander 'Heath'.
I loved Amy Champion's bordering on her + and x quilt and totally copied her (well her idea) Is that wrong?
I wanted the blocks to be hard edged with the Dark Grey and have a more softly floating corner into the Light Grey. I wanted the blocks to be in the corner so a thick border and a thin border evolved.
Did.not.love.it - at first
But it is growing on me!!!
What do you think - does it work or should I change to all Dark or all Light?
And No, for all those thinking: surely she has had enough now....DD1 has just requested her own in chosen colours....I think I can, I think I can....may need just a little 10 min break before launching into it again!!
