What's on my Design Wall......17 May 2010
I am continuing to work on the same project that I had started last week. I have ordered red fabric to go with this quilt. You would think that I would have red in my stash. I do have red in my stash, all the wrong reds. I hope that it will arrive today. You will have to come back next week and see what I do with the red. Hopefully it is not a dud.
Also this week I have been working on the arches for a wedding ring quilt. These are paper-pieced, so the white you see in the picture is the paper. I have them divided into sets (ribbons). There is 16 arches - A and B arch in each set. They start with light on one end and dark on the other. So what you are seeing is an A arch lying on top of a B arch and they go in opposite directions. I have 11 sets to make. I am trying to decide if I want to make two of these quilts (I have twin beds) or do I just want to make one and hang it. We will see how much of a pain it is when I start putting it together. This quilt is just not the usual wedding ring. It also has a star in it. Actually I think it will go together pretty easy, we will see.
I didn't report my stash yesterday, so I am going to include it here. I pulled 1 yard.
