Barbara, my fav color is blue as well. I love the blocks and the setting. I think I might use the blue sashing around the edge the same width, just to "hold in" the blocks.

Well, I'll try this one more time.  3rd time lucky, I hope.

Barbara, your top is shaping up nicely.  I think a pieced border would finish it off beautifully.  That is the most gorgeous blue!!  I'm currently working on the Stonefield quilt and looking at them up on my design board.  Blue may be just the ticket.  I happen to have a nice chunk of blue fossil fern left.  Hum....

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mom's here.  Have a wonderful day in spite of this self isolation.

Your setting is wonderful Barbara.  I no longer have a kitty, but when I did she always had to approve my work too.  The one I had before that really didn't care all that much.  As to whether or not to add a border, I guess that depends on how large you want it to be.  Personally I would, but it is not absolutely necessary.

Barbara, love your blocks & the setting is prefect. Nothing better than kitty approval on your quilt. :)

Fun to share what's being created with y'all.  I miss weekly sew and stich gatherings most with being housebound.  If I had to pick just one fav color, it would be blue, too.  And it's what I have in my stash the most, lol, especially large enough bits to make sashes and borders from.  Got it all assembled this morning.  Debating whether it needs some border treatment or if more of the blue strip for binding will be enough of a period to complete.  Debating scrappy blye and red HSTs or checkerboard strip floating in more of the pale floral background used for the edge triangles.

Looking good Barbara! I can see why Miss Elli approves! I’m glad you posted the second picture, I can see the colors more clearly. I love blue, so your color choices brought a smile to my heart. Nice job!

And what would life be like with out a kitty supervisor?  From the purrs, my guess is Miss Elli approves

Very nice blocks Barbara.  Bummer about your shoulder injury though.

Comment by Barbara Dieckmann on May 8, 2020 at 10:06am

Found another set of blocks from before my nasty accident that wrecked my shoulder.  From "Libertyville" by Terry Clothier Thompson.  Was a do together project for my weekly stitch and sew group at my fav local quilt shop.  Hands are not up to doing the planned on center appliqued medallion, so I'm making a few more pieced star blocks, then setting them on point.  Be nice to have done for the 4th of July.  Hope you all are continuing to make best use of our "sewquester" time, and staying healthy

Thanks Cat Lady. I wasn't sure if it was too bright or strong compared to the faded plate fabrics, but I think using the blue from the original border to split it gave me the width I need w/o it taking over. Often things work out without too much over thinking things.
