I did a trial layout of the quilt called “Red Center” in Kathy Doughty’s book. I have 3 repeats of each so they will be spread out in the quilt and not so close to each other as they are in the sample. I wanted to see if my variety of backgrounds was going to work well or if I needed to make them all in the cream/white/black prints. I think I might like the center to be the same shape as the other pieces instead of a square though. After I make more pieces I will get serious about designing this one.
I made 12 of the pinwheel blocks and 10 Fractured blocks last night too.
I also worked on sorting my parents’ old photographs. I have a family reunion on Saturday and I want to give some of the photos to the appropriate families. I still have a lot to sort so I hope I get them done in time.
My friend Rosemary is coming over today and we are going to baste one of her log cabin quilts. This is a detail shot of quilt #4 with an embroidery I gave her as a center of one of the blocks. We are going to baste quilt #3 which has been hanging at my house for about 3 months waiting for a day we were both available.
