Funny how I seem to get so much done when I stop fretting about what I'm not getting done.
Please tell me you know what I mean.
I finished block 20 this morning. Pretty plain and simple. Which is good because the next block has 24 paper sections and each paper section has at least two fabric pieces (some have 5 or more pieces), so that one's going to be a real challenge.
The original block 20 had a pink center, but that just didn't look right, so I replaced it with this purple one that has both green and orange in it. That seemed perfect and while less bright, also less abrasive. I wish the greens had been in better contrast, but if I worry about every little detail in these 36 blocks, I'm never going to finish this quilt. So, I'm learning to accept the little imperfections that exist in each block and move forward and enjoy the process and the quilt blocks.
This would be a good block to draft and piece in a Mariner's compass class. It might be the one I use.
Other than that, I'm getting things ready for travel. I always need a book, even if I don't pick it up the whole time I'm gone. This trip, I picked this book.
I think this will be an inspirational book for a family vacation. I'll let you know if I like it...or throw it out the car window.
Everybody have a great day. Lane
