An update on the 16 Patch & Pinwheels quilt I mentioned in my last post. (That's a tough name to say AND type! Might need to come up with something else!) I sewed up a few blocks today...and it's left me thinking, "hmmmm....am I going to like this?" I do like the visual effect of the squares that pop out. But something about it has me second guessing my choice of this pattern/fabric/colors....something! I did determine that I should have up-sized the measurements...those are tiny 1.5" finished squares! I wonder if it would have been better with 2 or 3" squares and bigger HST? Big sigh....
I think I'll just sit on it for a bit...and maybe even look for some updated, fun greens to add in. I does look kind of "camo" like, doesn't it? I guess that's good since it's for a guy.
Just another angle...I need to make about a gazillion more pinwheels and 16 patches to make a queen size quilt!
Like a lot of you, we still have plenty of snow and cold temperatures. You might have to click on the picture, but the trees have been covered in ice the last few days. It's really pretty!
We had some backyard visitors...I never get tired of watching these guys! I'm glad to see they are nice and filled out in the tummy area, if you know what I mean. It seems to me, there isn't a lot of food sources available, but they must be finding it!
Today while sewing, Nick was watching the snow drip and melt...it was quite fascinating!
But he soon became bored and went back to sunny himself in the window!
