weekend sewing

Just a little bit of sewing time this weekend on my present WiP. I had fun pairing up my fabrics, playing with contrast, and also doing a little fussy cutting on some of the wedges for added depth & interest. I've cut my circles into squares now - my squares all ended up at 15" so quite big really, bigger than those from "Vintage Spin" in Kathy's book. And now I'm having a play with the block placement... and auditioning fabrics for the centres... and I think the same fabric will be repeated for the binding too. Here's a little peek at what's been happening at my place -

Enjoy, while I go back out into my poorly neglected garden and get busy there...

  1. I didn't get to mine this weekend! Took me all day to add onto the round robin I had. Yours are looking great. I especially like the top one. As for centres, the black n white looks good. The one above it more blendy in. Guess it depends on the look you are going for. Look forward to seeing progress.

  11. This is coming together so beautifully! So many wonderful fabric combinations. I think you could do all the centers differently if you want.
