I still haven't made much progress on the borders for the mini-Clover Blossom quilt ... I am procrastinating my decision to make 80-some more tiny triangles for the border. My Curvy Rails block for the Modern Quilts Unlimited Magazine's Challenge, Everything Old is New Again, is still there. If you haven't yet voted for your favorite Modern interpretation of the traditional rail fence block, you can click the link to check out all the entries and vote for your favorite ... though Moira's block seems to be the Donald Trump in this social media vote.
The purple block is the redesign of Curvy Rails that I blogged about yesterday.
PBS kindly re-broadcast the finale of Downton Abbey last night, so I hand-pieced the new curvy units and watched it one last time.
I sewed them together on the machine this morning.
I DO prefer the redesigned block (which I am calling Wavy Gravy), but I can't say if it's because:
- I like the smaller size (8 inches square)
- It needed a fourth fabric
- It has much better value contrast
- I like it better without the center circle
- I prefer the scrappiness of the fabric choices to being limited to fabrics by one designer or one fabric manufacturer
What do you think?
I plan to hand piece a few more of these blocks this week to see how they look together and consider it as a possible new big, long-term rainbow scraps challenge project.
What do you plan to do this week?
