Good Morning Quilters!
The month of June has been so beautiful, and the flowers in Michigan have been spectacular. Last Saturday we visited our son and his family in Lansing, MI. They have a lot of beautiful peonies and I came home with such amazing bouquets. Look at these pictures:
The four inch blocks are still on the design wall, and I am still thinking about how to make them shine. Someone suggested they could be even more separated, and I am thinking about removing every other block, to give each block more space to shine on its own. But this is the status of my design wall today:
In the meantime, while thinking about the above blocks, I worked on the signature exchange blocks for the group exchange that will happen in my next trip to Shipshewana, IN. There are 48 women in the exchange, and the block is a star:
Someone (I think Preeti) asked why did they provide paper piecing on such a simple block...............and I think it is because with 48 different sewers making the same block, it is purely for accuracy and to make sure all blocks conform to 6.5 inches unfinished when they are exchanged. Paper piecing is a slow methodical rhythm thing for me, and helps me work through other problems while I am working on them. I have half of the blocks completed as of today.
What are you working on? Please join the weekly Design Wall Monday Linky Party below and show us. Thanks for participating. I appreciate all of you.
