Friday Update

All 30 blocks have been made and sashing added to the top two rows.

030615 (865x1024)I wasn’t sure at first if my vision for the sashing and cornerstones would work, but the further along that I get the more I am pleased with it.  I especially like the lighter feel to this quilt top since the last oriental top that I made was darker with black background and borders.

Here are a few of my favorite blocks:

030615C  (1024x1005)

030615A (962x1024)I pieced the center square for a kaleidoscope effect in this block with the same stripe from the block above.

030615B (1024x985)Here is a koi fish applique in the middle of the block.

When organizing my fabric, I came across a Halloween charm pack which I think would work great in this block.  However that idea will have to wait until later.

For the first time ever, I am linking up with Whoop Whoop Friday at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.

Have a good weekend,

    Ahh, it took a second look for me to catch the “middlestones.” Very nice.

      I was going for subtle (actually I was going for not-buying-any-fabric and using my stash) and I think it worked. The contrast shows up more in the quilt as compared to the photo.
