WIP Wednesday - nearly there!

So close, I can taste it!

It actually looks kinda okay.

The borders (outside the dark line) are just laid out right now, not sewn on:



It still seems awfully busy, and the seams are horrible when viewed up close. But the overall pattern is pretty good, I think!

I'm going to try to finish this on Friday. It's been lingering so long that it's become a millstone around my neck and I want it gone and done!


And once it is...

I'm thinking that I need some very simple projects for a while. Super-simple and easy, after the nightmare complexity of the kaleidoscope quilt.

So, forthwith are my ideas for the next three quilts (not counting the kaleidoscope quilt-along that I'll be doing with Don't Call Me Betsy):

1. hourglass blocks in purple-green-black batiks
2. disappearing nine-patch with Robert Kaufman's Imperial Collection
3. Mountain Majesty in Harvest fabrics

Very very simple, chain-piecing, easy-to-assemble-and-sew quilts.

A good idea right now since I'm burned out on the complicated after Supernova and Kaleidoscope.

  1. I think it looks fabulous! The borders are so cool with the matched up parts (couldn't think of the right word there.) Nice job!
