This week I’ve been busy sewing up a lot of intermediate steps, like these border blocks for the eventual Sparkling Gems quilt top. These need to be made in 7 different colorways, which are not referred to with normal colors like blue or orange or yellow. It’s like wanting to order a large coffee at Starbucks and having to remember their naming scheme, and that “grande” may feel “large” but is in fact “small”, much like “citron” feels yellow or orange but is in fact green.
I’ve also been working on the back for this monstrous Christmas quilt – I’m 9″ shy on the width for the back, so having to resort to some additional creative piecing to make it work. This picture captures an eighth of the quilt top because it’s too big fail. Or quilt.
