Not A Rainbow.

In spite of my best efforts and bargaining,
DS Joes somewhat blinkered taste
Regarding colour
and pattern
has left me with a limited
palette.
I wonder now if breaking the fabrics into their colour groups was such a good idea. Perhaps it would have been a better idea to chuck the whole lot into a basket and go for pot luck when making up the blocks. I'm having problems trying to visualise this one. Maybe once I start putting all the blocks together things will work out.

I'd been wondering what to do with the backs I had taken out of all the curtain samples I've been given. They make great foundations!
I want to quilt as I go, I keep on saying I will, then forgetting and having to force huge quilts through my poor little household machine. I think if I quilt as I go, the smaller more manageable pieces will mean that I can try some more complex quilting. First though, I have to find an acceptable backing fabric the maestro has rejected everything I have offered so far! Wish me luck with that.

DS Jonny is home, still unwell, but so much better than he was.

I'm off to do a few chores before I go to the shops.

Take care.

I'm glad to hear that Jonny is home and on the mend, be it slowly.
I'm sure that once you start playing with Joe's blocks, they will come together. Quilt as you go should be a nice change. You'll just have to decide which method to use to join them together.

Glad Jonny is back home. With some TLC he will get better much quicker at home.

I really love your blocks. I can't wait to see how it all goes together. And I can't wait to see the pattern! Have you shown it already and I missed it? I'm glad your son is home. Both of you take care.

Glad Jonny is home, he'll do better - hard to recoup in a hospital. Love the look of the blocks you've done.
