A couple of quick pics to show my progress. We are linking up at Lori's blog here.
We worked on the flower pots this month. They were fun to do. Not sure how I feel about the sunflower fabric (the "tone" of it doesn't quite fit the quilt, and usually my solution to that would be to either eliminate the fabric completely, or add more in! In this case, I'm adding. It will sort of be an experimental quilt. I also know I will need lots of various coping strips to even piece it all together properly!
Others have chosen to piece some of the floral blocks - such a good idea.
Thank you for your nice comments on Ethel's Baskets. I don't think I've returned a single email or replied to any comments this week. Some dear family friends have suffered a terrible tragedy - their 17 year old son took his own life - losing his battle with depression - and that has been the focus of the week. Hits close to home and sometimes life is just unbearably sad. I don't think I've ever felt so brokenhearted for a friend.
Life is sunshine and shadow. That just keeps coming up as a theme...
Thanks for another great sew along Lori. The deadlines help keep me moving in the sewing room...
