Middling Along


I'm back in the middle of Rose Boll this week. Aren't these fabrics gorgeous? I just love them! Click any photo to see them all full sized.


I have to say, it is already looking better than I dared to dream. When I bought the fabric last fall, I admit I felt some guilt about it. Couldn't I have made do with what I had?


Now I have no doubt that it was the right call to buy all the extra reds. The deep reds are needed to hold their own with all the florals.


And, I certainly didn't want to skimp on florals!

The mix of prints is so much fun. This time the pictures really do not do it justice.

Anyway, the middles are all done. The sawtooth edges are next!

  6. Oh my goodness! I can see that we have similar tastes, because I love everything you make! As a former Californian who once attended the Rose Bowl Parade (I was born in Pasadena, CA), I am particularly "bowled over" by these gorgeous blocks!

  9. Well, once you put those fabrics in your stash and waited a bit, you *were* using fabrics you already had. (That's my story and I'm sticking to it)

    1. Thank you! Prints are my favourites, so that helps. To me, it's endlessly interesting to combine patterns and see what happens. You can never predict it exactly!
