I made two more of the Grandmother's Choice blocks for the batik set. The first one is Grandmother's Choice.
The second one is Union Square. I am not sure how long it will take me to make the next two. I may get started tomorrow on them. Given that it took me a week to make the sunflower one last time, who knows what will happen this time.
I also made another set of wedges for my octagon quilt. I realized that when I looked at the other quilts made in a similar style that the strings were all more or less the same width. My scraps don't come that nicely. I am lucky to find pieces long enough to eke out eight wedges, so I have decided to go with the kaleidoscope look in each block, with each one being very different from the others. The one thing I will try and do is have one solid, or reads as solid, string in each block. In the first two, that happens to be the widest piece. I don't know if that will always be the case. I am not sure how I am going to put this all together yet, so I am just making wedges at this point. I would enjoy avoiding y seams if possible, but I will cross that road when I come to it.
For now, joyful quilting everyone.
