Focused and Finishing

I wasn't happy with my green blocks.  The green and the grey are just too close in color and tone so they don't pop like I envisioned.
So, I started over and made large flying geese blocks in twos. 
Then I arranged them every which way.  One nice thing about the design wall is I can look at it and live with it a bit before I commit! 
I sewed all the sections together on the central part of the quilt.
I could stop here because now I am caught up but....
I went ahead and cut out the Ohio star blocks and then made one to remember what all the piles are for!  I can sew a bit as I find the minutes throughout the week ahead. 
And then I did a lot of knitting.
I like this pattern and how the traveling twisted stitches look against the purl stitches and how it breaks up the stripes.
It was a nice day.

  1. I like the scale of your amended FG blocks much better -- good call! And what's not to love about any star block...

  2. Looks like you are very organized for this week.

    That IS a great pattern for those socks.

  4. Very clever idea to make up one block to remember what it's meant to look like! Love the green although I see your point about the grey background. Hope you've had a lovely weekend,

  5. I miss Daddio's design wall. I don't have space for one here so it's the floor or nothing and it's just not the same. All your blocks are gorgeous. Your quilt kit is making me twitch but I have 3 in boxes in the sewing room just gathering dust.
