I don’t know why but I haven’t got very far this week, or at least that’s how it feels. I’ve no excuse really only that I’ve had other things to do….oh and there’s been maybe a hint of laziness!
I have managed to finish another three City Sampler blocks though and I think I like them the best of all…plus they are all the perfect size, phew!
I added a bit of yellow to these blocks….I was intending to use a more mustardy yellow, but I couldn’t find enough fabrics in that colour, although in reality it’s probably just that I don’t really do muted colours much. It’s not that I don’t like them, just that colour always calls to me!
At first I wasn’t sure about the yellow, but after making them up I think it works fine and gives a nice little lift to the blocks.
I can’t say that the past few days have been the most productive in the creative sense, but I can say that I have ‘met’ (is that right? I don’t know!) lots of lovely bloggers through Lily’s blog meet and the Plum and June Monday Link up.
What’s more as a result of all this blog hopping I have found a great new Quilt Along happening over at freshlypieced. I’ve been looking for a bigger project for a while now, but not so big as to be over facing for a beginner like me and this one seems perfect.
