I find myself with several irons in the fire right now, and am reluctant to start a new project. It just seems the time to finish up some really nice projects that have been aside for too long. While rummaging in the closet, I dug out a project from several years ago, Victory Star, a Bonnie Blue kit that was part of a class I took. In class we completed a block or two, and went over various construction options of the units in the blocks. When I got home I made a few blocks, and wasn't feeling the darkness of the fabric and packed things up.
In re-opening this project box, I am quite pleased with the potential to use this quilt in my home. I have a white couch in my library room that this would look terrific on. The walls in that room are painted a warm yellow, and there are dark red curtains at the window. This will go great in that room and at 75" square will be a good size for a "couch quilt". And the block design....how cute is that? It reminds me of a fancy bow on the top of a present.
The blocks are somewhat involved, involving several "units" to come together to form the block. I will share that with you in a later post.
I spent a lovely day over this long weekend, making more blocks and setting them out on my design wall. Hope you all had a Happy Valentine's Day and a nice 3 day weekend!
