Sewing Day

Wednesday is now sewing day - moved from Thursday. And that's just what I did today. I finished the blocks for the frame around the poem illustration and then I put it all together. The working drawing shows the words of the poem that the quilt will illustrate. The words and a lot more detail on the centre picture will be added with the quilting.

You can see the last three blocks I did, in the top right hand corner. They have a different look to the rest of them. That is because I had a long break between finishing the bulk of them and doing those last three. I had lost touch with them. I've made them without the plainer pieces that the others have. I wonder if I should remake them? Whaddya reckon?

it could be that i'm looking at it on the computer so the magnification is quite small but it looks fine to me - can't see any difference at all and even had to reread it a few times to make sure i was looking at the right blocks...

looks cool btw.

Wahoo, a sewing day for you!

I like the very top right hand one with the yellow and blue star. Not sure about the other two. Not much help am I?

well, that top star one is the worst of the last three as it has three fairly definite print fabrics! They all have spots or stripes whereas most of the other blocks have at least one plain-ish hand-dye. Oh, well, don't think I'll summon the energy to remake as there has been no spontaneous outcry!

Hi Janice
The only thing I would say is that the little girl's face needs more definition. She is a bit pale (pink even).

Oh, yes, that will happen with the quilting. Lots more detail to be added to the picture at that stage.
