Oops...I Did it Again!
Weeks 1 & 2
Contrary Wife, Basket Weave, Big Dipper
Calico Puzzle, Box, Autumn Tint
I have started working on another quilt! I don't quite know what has come over me but what can I say...it was really irresistible to me. I have joined in with the sew-along hosted by Randy from Barrister's Block. She is posting blocks twice per month and I am a little late joining in but no fear - I am already caught up. Boy oh boy, I am liking what I see so far! At first I thought I would use cheddar as my neutral but I have changed my mind and decided to make my blocks using different shades of browns and blues. I have not decided yet what I will use for sashing but maybe the cheddar or tan or dark blue will show up there. I guess I really have to wait to see how all the blocks look together before I actually commit. I happen to be married to an engineer so I am going to call mine The Engineer's Wife. Looking at my pictures I see that the colouring for Calico Puzzle is really off - it is really a tan and not as dark as it appears in the photo. I am really looking forward to the next installment that will be released this Wednesday. Hop on over to Randy's blog if you can't resist either!
