My cousin responded to my question regarding my aunt’s favourite colours, saying that they are pinks, rose-coloured pinks rather than baby pinks, and greens. Now I’m trying to decide what to do. I did a rough calculation on the weekend and I think it will take approximately 7 or 8 weeks just to piece the Summer Picnic Dish top, which would only leave me 2 weeks to get it quilted and bound. There is very little wiggle room in that timing. Could the pansy floral be considered anything close to a pastel rose colour?
I’ve been thinking about it most of the weekend and, as I see it, I have 3 choices at this point although there’s a fourth idea that I will look at more later today. The three choices? The Summer Picnic Dish:
Second idea? Adding a few more rows around this first quadrant of the Spring Circles and making that a lap quilt for my aunt. Not all pinks and greens but I think the overall feel of it is along those lines:
The third choice is to add another 12 or 13 of the Pink Ice blocks and turn that into a lap quilt. Not sure where the green would come in, although I suppose I could add two borders — one in a pretty green and then a pink. These are very quick blocks to make, and I could easily have them done within a few weeks.
Or I could add a very thin mint green sashing around the blocks.
My fourth idea? I’m playing with the idea of a Winding Ways top done in a pink fabric that almost reads as a solid and a very pale small sprig green with tiny pink buds on a creamy white fabric. I will get those fabrics out today and have a look at them to see if they work together or not.
It was a very cold and incredibly windy weekend. There was damage done in areas of the city from the wind and we had wind chills of -3C. It was warmer in March than it is now.
Lester spent a bit of time on the windowsill, but not much. I think nice warm kitty beds were much more enticing this weekend.
Smudge was — well, being Smudge.
