My new quilt in progress now has a working name – Ribbons of Flowers Garden Quilt. And while I’m still undecided about whether the very first Ribbon Flower block I made will go in this or the Peony Quilt, I know for sure where this one is going – in the new quilt in progress! I think I’m determined to try almost every variation I can using different fabric placement, using the bonus shape, et cetera.
Block 2 – which is a study in pink! As of right now, I think each block will be a study in tones of one colour. And of course, given that I have more pink in my stash than just about anything else, my garden may have a preponderance of pink blocks!
I love how beautifully this variation presses – every intersection was so easy to deal with and pressed beautifully. I haven’t yet graded the seams, but will do so, particularly where a darker pink might shadow though a lighter one.
Next up will be a purple flower. I’ve chosen all the fabrics and printed my shapes last night. I spent ages yesterday looking for that print that I know I still have a piece of that would be perfect in a purple flower but didn’t find it. However, I found something else that works. And I’ll keep looking for that elusive piece of fabric!
“Looking for Something?”
Jake either didn’t notice or was studiously ignoring the big paws hanging over his head – as just a few seconds later the mock battle began between the two of them. It’s quite funny to watch as there is much paw waving that goes on during one of those mock battles. It usually ends in a wild chase through the apartment, but not yesterday.
Yesterday, after a few seconds of paw waving, Baxter jumped down and went over to hang out with some toys.
