Not very neat, but this is what is on the wall in the basement right now. First in the picture is the strippy diamonds that has been downgraded from a quilt to a tablerunner. I like it, but I wasn't really enjoying the process. I figure I am too old to spend lots of time on something that I am not enjoying if I don't have to.
Another change - from the lighter gray and white to this medium dark gray for the leafy vines. I also went to EQ5 and figured out an arc that would curve across the quilt. Wish I were better at working with EQ. I can figure some of the things out and love being able to see what things will look like. Sometimes when I figure how to do something cool on it, I forget it before I do it again.
The blocks are 8 inches instead of twelve but there are fewer leaves since there is just one arc across the block. The lighter colors stand out on this gray and I like this much better. The applique on each block can be done in just a few minutes.
And now my dancers--all appliqued--and I like them a lot. Not a very big piece but it was fun to do and I am anxious to quilt it. That piece of black and white is in several of my quilts. Lots of movement and I think it just goes with the two of them. Was thinking a small black and white stripe binding or border but this won out. Will miter the corners since I have plenty of the fabric.
And just an added note - that crazy robin is still flying into my window every once in a while!
