Good Morning Quilters!
It is now October, and I planted three big mums out in front, and brought out the terracotta clay jack o 'lanterns and put them on the front porch. Fall here we come!
I got a lot accomplished this week - although I changed plans a bit on the border for the two May Day Baskets quilts. I made 4 inch square-within-a-square blocks for the small doll quilt, put them around it on the design wall and took a picture:
Something is not right. I decided the border blocks were too big, and so I took them down and put them around the big May Day Basket quilt. And I liked the border there much better! But that means I need to make a lot more of the 4 inch square-within-a-square blocks to go all the way around the big quilt. I haven't figured out how many yet - but a bunch!
Please excuse my feet in this picture, I didn't notice this until I posted it here, and hope you will excuse my socks. My design wall was the floor, since the Benjamin Biggs Wedding quilt was on the design wall.And back to the doll quilt, if the 4 inch blocks were too big, I decided to try 2 inch square-within-a-square blocks. I made two and put them on the design wall for a picture. I felt like Goldilocks trying out the three bear's porridge. The small blocks are just right!
Which of course means I have to make about twice as many blocks, to go all the way around the doll quilt. Maybe 44 blocks. But since I have made 2, I only have 42 to go! But now I know it is exactly what I want and I am excited to get these two quilt tops finished. Yeah!
What have you been doing since October started? I so enjoy reading your blogs and looking at all of your pictures. Thanks for joining in our Design Wall Mondays LInky Party. I appreciate you.
