Weekly Goals

Monday, March 14, 2011
Time to set goals.  

  1. Make 4 more Two Lips blocks
  2. Prep 2 more Beyond the Cherry Trees blocks
  3. Put borders on Scrappy Trip Around the World (after your feedback!)

An update on last week's goals.  Last week I wanted to make 5 Two Lips blocks.  Done.  One is from the previous week.

And finish a Beyond the Cherry Trees block.  I finished #6.

I think the colors are a bit insipid but its only one block in a big quilt.  I admit I didn't like making those flowers.  

I haven't decided on a border for the Scrappy Trip around the world.  I have laid several pieces on it--I wanted a brown, but a blue might be better.   

A brown, medium blue, lighter blue, medium blue, and a medium purple.  I think maybe an even darker blue with the brown for a wider second border---what do you think??

Definitely the med. blue on the left. It would look good as one wide border but if you want the quilt just a little bigger make it narrower and add the wide brown border.

Is it Spring yet in SD?? Kind of feels like it here.

I am, of course, slightly partial to blue. I think the brown would blend a bit, but if there was a nice dark blue in between, it would probably be great!

I would go with a narrow white inner border to give some separation and reduce visual clutter then whatever turns you on.

There is more brown than blue in the quilt, or it appears that way to my eyes, in the part I could see. I like the blue that pulls out those 3 darker blue squares. If brown, I'd want a darker one, but I think a small blue border and a wider brown border would be great, too.

btw, I wasn't as crazy about that block, either, but it could be partly the yellows. I'm not a big fan of yellow. So my only large rose bush is yellow, of course.
