En Provence Blocks DONE!
I made a few little parts yesterday and sewed together the last En Provence block. Yay! I finally took these quilt pieces off our guest bed.
I'd been making more nine patches as leaders and enders as I finished the above block. Before I knew it I had finished all of these, too! Yippee!
So now that the bed was cleared, it was time to fill it up again. I'm still trying to decided between two layouts. The one above has all the Winding Ways blocks in the center with the baskets and nine patches forming the four borders. There will need to be a strip of fabric in between.
And layout number two features alternating columns of Winding Ways blocks and baskets/nine patches, again with a strip of fabric in between.
I'd been leaning toward one of these before and now I think I'm leaning toward the other. I would love opinions!!! Please tell me what you think!
And now that I'm looking at the photos again, I'm thinking it all looks like mush. Oh dear. Of course, these Kaffe Fassett fabrics are mostly the same value - all mediums. So that makes me wonder if I should go a totally different route. Maybe sash the winding ways blocks? Then I might not even include the baskets and nine patches. Oh my, I've opened a can of worms!
Anyhow, today is the day for this quilt and I need to let the blocks rest and figure out what's next. So I think I'll spend the morning pin basting Bliss. Sounds like a plan!
Have a great day!
