When I arranged my first blocks (not yet ironed), my dear daughter said "It's kinda busy." <sigh> Then today after ironing them nice and flat, she looked at it and said "It's pretty and it's mine". "No" my husband said, "It's mine!". <happy sigh> I think they like it! Actually, it is sort of like a painting. Up close all you can see is a jumble of colors. You take a step back and SNAP all of a sudden you see the beauty of the pattern and colors. Thank you, Bonnie Hunter!
Has anyone experienced this problem? Occasionally I flip a piece around while I am sewing up the block. Sometimes it is the blue star points and other times I turn around the four-patch. My seam ripper is getting quite the workout. Can anyone see the problem in the upper left block on the quilt above? I just found it.
Many of you who shop Connecting Threads will spot familiar patterns in the oranges, greens and blues.
Bonnie unveiled the final design on New Years Day, but I didn't look online until the evening. Instead I was busy working on Blueberry Hill (aka Jamestown Landing). I have finished 10 rows out of 21. This one will probably take me all year long to finish. Maybe I should name this quilt The Jamestown Marathon.
