On to the Next Round

Thanks for the advice re the border. As you can see I decided to go for red.

The 9 patches on the left are hand dyes given to me by a quilting friend. Unfortunately there were only 6. The block top right is made up of tiny, tiny squares I received in a swap.

I'm thinking of using the hand dyes for the next border, as per the photo, and adding some more red on the right.

I'll then switch over for the next round with the tiny squares on the right and more red on the left, but I may  not get that far!

I know it's not at all similar to the original quilt design, but this seems to be gaining some sort of momentum and I like the way its going.

Fabulous gifts to receive! And how much fun will you have working with them?! And momentum is always good, it's being stuck in a rut that does more harm! Oh, wait...don't trip over anything going outside around steps!

Michele - I hope you can run fast. I'm coming at you with the fly swat!

I love the red border. Have fun with the momentum!

Michele Bilyeu said...

Oh, man...Clare is after me..with my own fly swat, too! Dang, do you think she still limps so it will slow her down? Oh, no...she's the wild, mad, crazy English woman living in France and she is fast with both my life and her limbs ;)

(PS for those who don't know, my first comment referred to Clare tripping on a piece of concrete step and breaking a leg last year...the wrong kind of spontaneous momentum!)
