It was fun to play with the Dawn to Dusk blocks. I first laid out the blocks per the directions in the book More Nickel Quilts by Pat Speth.
Blah – maybe okay, but nothing special. Try again.
I like the darker blocks around the edges with the lighter blocks on the inside, however the odd row in the middle is distracting.
Removing the row makes a positive difference. Now all that is needed is a bit of color tweaking and the top will be ready for assembly.
Ta-da, the completed quilt top. The pieced border was made with bits of the leftover jellyroll strips. Don’t they add a playful addition to the quilt?
Time to start on May’s goals:
- Quilt top Social Sharks
- Finish the machine quilting of Batik Pineapple Blossom
- Wool applique wall-hanging We Three Gnomes
- Machine quilt Valley of the Kings flimsy
Happy Mother’s Day,
