Kristy at QuietPlay.
I was undecided if I was going to use this really nice turquoise blue in just a couple of the blocks or replace it with brown. Since I went back to my original plan of using primarily brown, red, and a little beige...I grabbed back to the turquoise to make it just a little more kitschy again.
I also realized something along the way. I really wanted to use these really great larger prints for most of the blocks. That was what drew me to the SAL in the first place. When I started to sew the lemonade pitcher, I sewed on one stripe, flipped it under and sewed in place. I didn't want to go shifting the main fabric around like I had done on previous blocks. It was and would be too much of a hassle and the complete effect is/would be lost. This is what I mean:
The radio went together really well except for the handle. It didn't really want to match up the way I wanted it too. I am curious to see what I am going to do with the front of the radio as far as embroidery or t-shirt stickers.
I apologize if the photographs are too vivid. I think I have to check the settings on the new computer and/or old camera.
Just two more blocks and I can write this one off. I am happy that some things are coming to an end. I need more time for other projects, but I will miss this one!!
Happy patching! Karen
