Its been two weeks since I did a WIP Wednesday, Last week I just missed it and WIP Thursday just didn't have the same ring to it.
I finished the stitchery part of my tall stitchery. This was the first one I've done in stem stich and using variegated thread. I'm quite happy with it. As this was a kit I already have the fabric for the boarders.
Like I said in an earlier post I picked up zinger fabric for my red and white quilt and hopefully it will make its way to the laundry room to be pre-washed soon. I typically don't pre-washed my fabrics but have for all the fabrics in this quilt so am going to for this one too. As this quilt has a deadline I should be working on it, but its not working out that way.
I have made a couple more Farmers Wife blocks, and have a question for you on them. For the first couple I have used a crisp cream (which reads white against the blue and drown) and I'm liking the modern feel it gives these blocks. For the last couple of blocks I did not.
For this one I used a lighter shade of the blue
and for this one I used polka dots.
I like these blocks but to me they don't seem to have the same feel as the others. Here are the blocks together.
Is it just because I only have a couple of these blocks and it read better once I have more?
Or should I redo them with the "white" fabric. I brought the end of a blot when a store was closing so have lots of this fabric. I am planning on doing the shashing in brown with blue cornerstones.
Please let me know what you think.
