my sleepy "fabric guard"...
finished block..string of pearls
These blocks are not for the faint of heart! The five blocks are listing in order of difficulty so I hope by the time I stitch this strawberry block together I will not be quite so intimidated!
I did "cheat" a bit and put together the 4-inch star blocks by machine. The blank spots have drunkards path blocks....those I'll sew by hand!
I chose fabrics to go with the southern folk paintings in my kitchen. My eyes are doing well right now so I can "see" the red...
when I started piecing this zig-zag top my eyes couldn't see red so not a lot of red in it...either I'm going to pull the red and orange pieces or add more so they don't look so orphaned!
It is way too hot here to do much in the garden. The daylillies are in full bloom. The red one above was given to me by my friend Paula last year and is doing well in my front garden!
