Blocks 8 & 9 and One To Grow On

March 13, 2014

The original concept of this project only needs nine blocks, but when someone asked if I was going to finish each block individually I thought, “Hummm.”┬áSo I’ve made 10 blocks and I’ll experiment with one and make a decision.

Brown Blocks 4 and 5

February 10, 2014

The weather has kept me in the house for the whole week. Although being house bound makes me grumpy : ) I’ve accomplisted a fair amount of work. This week there are two brown blocks. For work that appears so simple, I seem to spend an incredible amount of time mulling and rearranging pieces. Block Five was sewn together, ripped apart, and re-sewn into another arrangement. I like how the “shiny” shows in Block Four. My goal is “Elegant Simplicity.” The fabrics are mostly silks and polyesters.
