We are getting there! I got 3 more blocks pieced today for a total of 21.
BUT…there are a couple of “rejects”.
The purple block is rejected just because the colors don’t belong in this quilt. The red/blue block is rejected because of the red fabric. It is a very large-thread flannel. I started not to use it when I was cutting the blocks out, and now I wish I would have listened to that inner voice. The feel of the fabric and the “busy-ness” just bother me, so it will not be used.
Another reject… the fabric I purchased for the pieced sashing. The print looked more brown on the internet. I do not like this… it looks too “Christmasy”. I thought I would like it better after piecing some but today I decided it will have to go.
What I am really wanting is a brown/gold stripe fabric but I have not found that anywhere. OH… and of course, I want it on SALE.
So, after all of that we can deduce that I have 19 keeper blocks and only need 6 more. They are cut out and ready to piece but it will be next week before I can get to them.
I’m very pleased with the progress I have made on this UFO, and I should not have any problem finishing the piecing and getting it quilted by the end of February…. provided I can find the FABRIC for the sashing!
Have a great weekend! And next week I will post my sock progress… you will be surprised!
