Now for the hard part. . .
I finished replacing the center squares in the gold stars and laid out the quilt center in the floor. You can see there in the top left corner how much room I have to move my sewing chair! I need to get it assembled quickly and out of the way. I like my substitution. I brings the green into the red areas and the red into the green areas and balances the design, at least in my view. I am so eager to finish this quilt!
What to work on next? Well, I have both a New Year's Eve and a New Year's Day mystery quilt to complete - all I got done on each on the day was assembling the blocks. Then, I can try to finish a small quilt I started making of scraps from Mods's Fig Tree designer lines so I can get that off my design wall. Of course, I have other unfinished projects like assembling the Civil War sampler quilt and the EQ sampler quilt. And the Blue Ridge Beauty I started during Orca Bay. And the quilt my husband wants made out of cat fabrics. And the Cheddar bow tie blocks that have been languishing in their box. And. . .and, well a lot. Quiltwise, my eyes are bigger than my stomach. And I haven't even mentioned the black and white fabric I bought yesterday at Joann's for a black/white/lime green Orange Crush variation that is inspired by a lovely quilt I saw on Vivian's blog, Sew At Home On Pine Ridge. Take a look at the quilt in her header and see if you don't agree that it's the most striking version of Orange Crush you've ever seen. Bravo, Vivian!
I have to get some finishes logged somehow. It's getting ridiculous. I need to quit reading blogs and getting all this inspiration.
