Reflections

  The closet is half empty of the fabric stash.....of course the spare bedroom is a wreck!  But a little each day and we will be prepared for the upset/repairs.   And thanks for all the reasons to buy more fabric.  Blogging friends are such enablers:)
  I still have my machines available for now, so I wanted to finish up the water color throw.    Binding is now on and the label too.





   Reflections  is a small lap throw......48'' by 60''.  It was an experiment and play time for the layout.  I had never tried this type of layout before.
   I began with 14'' square foundation of fusible interfacing.  That means  the block units would be 7 squares (2'') across and down.  Each block unit was shaded and blended individually.  I could have joined the blocks together without the light sashing, but for some reason I preferred the sashing this time.    I added pieced strips of dark florals for the border.


   I do like how the light shimmers across the blocks like dappled sunlight through a tree's branches.

This experiment is done! And I  get to scratch off a project on the to-do list.  That is always satisfying.

  5. Your experiment was highly successful! Reflections is gorgeous. The sashing really adds to it. I'm so glad you still have machine access. Hopefully the repairs will be behind you before long. ~Jeanne

  9. It is always good to experiment with layouts and especially ones that you wouldn't normally do. This one turned out great.

  10. Or trailing vines over a garden trellis. Whatever you want to call it, this is a very pretty, soothing quilt!
