You may remember Terry had a 60th birthday some months ago. At the party I had some cream and blue fabric rectangles (bricks) prepared with freeezer paper backing and a pile of fabric crayons and fabric felt tip pens. I asked guests and family members to draw on the fabric bricks which many did - some did more than one. Over the past few weeks when I have managed to escape to my sewing room (since it became a sewing room again and not temporary living quarters) I've sewn the bricks together into a wall with scrappy brown and fawn fabric brick pointing.
I printed the party invitations on fabric and cut them up to make every second block on the top and bottom rows.I also started to sew a diamond border but I've got bored with that (no surprise to those who know me and my piecing skills) and the other two borders might just be squares.
My niece gave me the fawn, brown and blue fabric for a Christmas present in 2007 and said that it was to be a quilt for Terry. So it will.
I'm looking for input from you - should I persevere with the diamonds or will the squares look ok?
