The blocks I finished starting from the upper left hand corner are:
Bowtie, Economy, Hovering Hawks, Autumn Tints and Practical Orchard. I placed two other fabrics from the Ruby line to fill in the spaces. The gray/white swirl is what I plan on using as the setting triangles and the pink with red dots is my choice for sashing. Then for the border I was planning to use this fabric:
This quilt is designed on-point so the gray/white swirl will be between the border and the sashing. I'm thinking it will turn out okay but in looking at the few blocks I've finished, I probably better start using a little more green!
As I said above, I've been toying with the idea of adding another fabric line for more variety. Over the weekend I searched for something that had colors similar to Ruby but also introduced another color. By process of elimination, I've chosen Flora by Lauren & Jessie Jung for Moda. Here are the fabrics in the Flora line which I found at Charm Packs Plus:
I think these fabrics will not only blend well with Ruby but will also introduce yellow for a little extra sparkle. There are some orangy fabrics in this line which I will not use as they will clash with the reds and pinks but otherwise, I think Flora is a good choice. What do you think?
My plan for this week is to try and sew 2 blocks each day. All of them are fairly easy and now since I am using Marti Michell's template sets, they are even easier : )
Whatever you have planned for the week, I hope you meet your goals. Since I'm working on 3 applique projects and now this piecing project, my plate is pretty full!
Until next time . . .
