Quilt Design Process Part 7 - Moving Along


I finished SIX more blocks on Sean's quilt. Considering up to this weekend I have done only two, this was a big leap forward. Now, full disclosure, four of the blocks used the same fabrics... but still!

I was not crazy about how the green was working in the above blocks. But when I put them next to the other completed blocks, they looked pretty good. (That photo did not come out well at all...I'll try again when I get a sunny day.)

Sean likes maps and globes (nerdy history guy that he is) so when I saw this orange fabric I knew it would be perfect for the quilt. It's thematic but not over the top at all.
