I am not even close to finishing the Fiesta top. I keep forgetting that even though I laid out the blocks and thought I had the block placement all figured out, I’ve been changing it as I go — so it’s not just a matter of sewing the blocks together now but moving them around and — well, just changing things on every row since the second one!
So all I’ve got are some more pics of a few of the blocks. First a pretty blue star block.
Some of the star blocks have a frame, so to speak, as well. Like this gold star one.
And this purple star one.
And, of course, I saved the best for last — a pink one!
I was asked again about the fabric I used to fussy cut for Fiesta. It’s this fabric. I saw it on sale and bought a few yards of it a number of years ago. I had no idea in mind for it at all when I saw it, just knew that that fabric was going to translate into something fabulous eventually. Since then I’ve tried window templates of all sorts of shapes on it and none of them were right until Fiesta. When I made a window template for the Fiesta shape and tried it, it was perfect!
Baxter was reclining on a pillow after having managed to get a vast number of his toys all bunched up together at the entrance to his tunnel or in the tunnel.
I looked out the window yesterday and the roof garden lawn looked as though something had dug up funny little holes all over. Then I just happened to look up and there, sitting in a tree looking right back at me, was a raccoon. We checked periodically throughout the afternoon and there it stayed. But as soon as it was dark, the raccoon had climbed down.
