This is how many of the melon/arc combos are done so far for the Summer Picnic Dish top. There are only 12 left to make and then it will be a hopefully quick few nights of stitching and the top will be done. At the rate I’m going on these, I think I’ll have the remaining 12 melon/arc combos done sometime late this week. Lots and lots of continuous stitching and curved piecing involved in stitching these is helping to keep me motivated.
I’m grading the seams as I stitch each one. And pressing them when there are 3 or 4 done.
It’s very hard staying focused and motivated to finish the Summer Picnic Dish quilt top, when the kaleidoscope star projects are calling to me. The wild floral ones, the butterfly ones, the brown and blue paisley ones, the mauve and pink ones. And the pottery fabric. But that fabric’s not just calling to me. Oh, no. It’s yelling, screaming, hollering at me to play!
As is this fabric. At first glance it may not seem quite right for kaleidoscope stars but when I started looking at it with the window templates I realized just how fabulous stars made with the 2″ diamonds will be. See? Any fabric I have that’s two yards or more is not safe. Everything is getting auditioned for kaleidoscope somethings! Maybe it is a good thing that the vast majority of my stash is FQs. Otherwise, everything would be about to be turned into a kaleidoscope star project!
