What's up on my wall is what I was working on yesterday and that is the Thangles buck-a-block from a few years ago. I was trying to decide on which border to use, and decided to go with what I used as the alternate blocks
But it's a small quilt not very big, 38x52 and I want to make it big enough to at least be used as a lap quilt. So I think what I'm going to do is I'm going to add a small strip a dark brown to break up the border and blocks. I'll make the border 6 inches and the inside strip an inch and a half so that will give me an additional 15 inches around... making it 53x 67. I think that will be doable.
I had thought about using the leftover strip - but I don't believe I will have enough - I haven't measured yet.
Prior to working on this, I decided to take my walk this morning while we were having a gentle summer rain. I haven't deliberately done this in years.
You know if you ever get a chance and don't have to worry about getting damp try it.... it's a wonderful experience
I believe I rather get damp from the rain then from humidity.
It reminded me of something I would've done when I was younger.
Since I've been home this past week I've had to decide whether I work in the garden early in the morning or take my walk. Working in the garden has won out a majority of the days last week. And I really miss my walk and seeing how the forecast this week is for the next four days a 60% chance of rain, I see myself probably doing this again
I'm trying to decide what I will next put up on the wall.
I had finished my embroidery block for Ruby's garden and I could start piecing the alternate block for that
