This is totally unlike me, as you know if you’ve read my blog for any length of time, but I am staying engrossed in just one project. And am I ever making progress.
Springtime in Paris is one-quarter finished. Slightly over one-quarter finished, actually. And I love how it’s turning out. It’s exactly as I had envisioned it would be. Stitching the peels to the completed centres has turned out to be an incredibly quick process. It is taking me more time to choose which peels go where than it does to stitch them on to a centre and then on to the rest of the quilt top. Now I know without a doubt why I so love making variations from the Inklingo Orange Peel Deluxe collection – it involves a very gentle curve on the peels that make for incredibly quick and enjoyable stitching.
This is why I’ve been mostly missing from the blog. I figure there’s only so much interest in how it looks with the addition of one or two blocks but perhaps as I get each row finished I’ll post a new picture. Of course, all this will go out the window if I give in to a couple of the ideas that are in my mind and that I’m dying to get started on – then I’ll be back to my normal posting of a myriad of different projects. But I am trying ever so hard to not go down that rabbit hole. I really, really want to get Springtime in Paris finished.
Jake was posing on the pink chair. I think pink is his colour. Of course, I think pink is everyone’s colour!
And Baxter was auditioning his Morris look.
