Opinions and Thoughts Please!
We are plugging away at our UFOs for completion of a PHD by the end of the year. Our design wall has been hogged for quite some time by our Grandma’s Kitchen blocks (and that ABC wall hanging). The remaining 12″ blocks anyway, because the 10″ ones found themselves together in a table runner. Soooooo, we are short one block because we stopped participating in the QAL. ~sigh~ I don’t even remember why. As you can see in this photo, we have the 15 blocks laid out in a 4 x 4 design. That would make a square quilt . . . which I despise. So – here’s where you come in! Should we a) change the layout to 3 x 5; b) choose a block to complete this layout and if so, which block; c) some other fabulous suggestion of your choosing. It would be easy to make it a rectangle by just adding wider borders crosswise and narrower ones lengthwise. Thoughts please!!
UFO #6 – Grandma’s Kitchen
Our other dilemma involves sweet baby Dominic. What?! How can he pose a questionable action for us?! Just in case you have missed all pictures of him, let me be forced to share the most recent of Mr. Sweetie so you can see who caused the dilemma.
During the fabulous sale last weekend that I was dragged to by our friend Carol, some flannel fabric hopped into my cart. I don’t like sewing with flannel, but oh my! They had some REALLY CUTE stuff, including these two that I couldn’t possibly pass up.
Dominic’s Next Quilt
Since poor little Dominic can’t have a puppy – how can mom say NO to that adorable smile?? – I feel we need to compensate for that. The black fabric, with the sweet little hearts in the paw prints coupled with red hearts scattered throughout just screamed his name to me. And the black and white fabric coordinated with the black fabric so it just followed along by jumping into the cart. I have to say I am proud of myself for walking away from the arrow and feather flannels that were wanting to come home with me, too. It was difficult but I was strong.
Your opinions wanted please! What should we make from this? We have 2 yards of each fabric, which should be plenty for our sweet boy. We have something in our stash for the background, I’m sure . . . or I could go buy something, if necessary. I’m flexible that way, always willing to take the hit to go to the store to finish a project! What pattern would you use?
That’s all for today! I preempted the usual tutorial this week for this post, and it was a cute quilt too. You’ll just have to come back next Saturday to see it. ~smile~ Dominic, Sue and I all wish you a very happy Saturday!
