One from a valentine fabric and one from my alcohol fabric collection! Seeing pink elephants???
Mostly this week I have worked on my tumbling block quilt, fine tuning colors and arrangements.
I made a few more blocks to bring more color into the predominantly black and white ones, and added a row on the left side. I am sewing the blocks together in pinned sections at night while listening to tv.
I also spent some time on my red scrap wall quilt, or table runner, or banner. (time will tell which)
I added in a purple scrap on one side, and the beloved red with gold circles vintage scrap next to it and chose a binding fabric of gold with red circles.I almost put a black strip on the right but last minute I decided to keep it somewhat symetrical, thinking if I did that your eye would be drawn to the center to see the fun piecing instead of looking at all the different borders.
I'm not sure I like it but figure red thread quilted in the purple scrap strip, or beads will mitigate the color pop.
here's a video I found this week:
