Blue (and Green) Monday



My design wall for today holds those star blocks I've been fretting about.  I'm trying to create a zigzag frame for the feathered star.  It's going well -- but I worry that it will be too "heavy" for this delicate looking block.


Then I need to figure out how to sew them all together.  I have three or four more blocks I want to make for this and I'm thinking that I want to create four more frames.  Hmmm... having the blocks on point may make a quilt that's too big for me to quilt myself.  But I was really looking forward to piecing something cool in the setting triangles.

This is Rosie helping.  She's not crazy about Mondays either.  And now for something completely different...

Oh my this is REALLY, really beautiful! I love the blocks all on their own, but your color scheme is absolutely fantastic!

Your quilt is incredible. I think the zigzag is perfect. I cannot wait to see the rest of it. Stunning colors.

This quilt is going to be spectacular. Can't wait to see the finished product.

I love the combination of blues and greens. I am looking forward to seeing which ones wind up in the finished piece.

First of all my motto is that you can never have enough blue and green since I wear one or another everyday - but also LOVE THIS quilt!! Yes the borders are busy but it really has a lot of movement - great job!!

Totally gorgeous quilt blocks! I love this color combination. The quilt I am working on is a one block wonder, I don't think I would ever tackle something like you are making. I'm sure you will finish it out beautifully.

Ye scurvy dog ye!
