I have had this Geisha Girls fabric for a while...thinking it would make a good 4 patch posy quilt.
It's maybe not the BEST for the job...but i got some cool blocks. over several days i made many, many blocks....about 100 of them. there's these....
And these and these....
Don't worry....i won't show you all of them...LOL but i think it will be ok. i have to find my 4 Patch Posy book...i believe there should be a strip around the blocks. have to figure out how to use them. i also embroidered about a dozen 8" blocks of Japanese designs in redwork style on a pale orange fabric. i was thinking they would be in the border...but now i am leaning toward the design in the middle and these little blocks around the edges. don't know yet...still thinking.
And the Cabin Cats saga continues. in case you have lost count...i am on #6..Boxed Squares. pattern courtesy of Mary Johnson at (I think) www.maryquilts.com that might not be quite right....but the site is on the other computer at the house.
So far i have done 2 blocks...a dark and a light. i have 80 blocks worth cut out so that will be the focus of next week's night work....my second shift. LOL they will be 6" finished.
And in between all that...i am working on some pink crazy quilt blocks a bit. i dyed some lace and rickrack and things hot pink. they all came out different shades of pink. rickrack hardly holds dye at all....i thought it would. love those little froggies. i had more pink scraps than i thought i did.
So now you are caught up with my crazy life at the farm. once warmer weather hits i will be into yard projects....i have a list.
Tomorrow i head to the Duck for serious wall demolition and bathroom madness. i shall be back on Tuesday with pictures (i hope) and tales of destruction.
In the meantime, carry on without me. be safe
