The next two Gardens of a King quilt pieced blocks are reading for sharing. I love the effect of the bold striped red fabric that frames the small brown star. I think it is very dramatic!
The blue looks quite bright on my computer screen but it is actually much softer. I had used two different gold fabrics for the star in the middle. I wish I had used golds with a stronger contrast. Oh well, it is what it is and it is staying the way it is!
I also managed to get one Lozagons block stitched! Busy fingers, n'est ce pas? The purple floral print is a very old piece of fabric from the bag of scraps I bought at a church jumble sale and the yellow print and the green print with orange flowers are both older fabrics from my 1930s fabric stash. I quite like this block and think that once it is surrounded with turquoise stars it will sparkle! I'm working on these blocks slowly but the pile of completed blocks is growing! Guess I'll have to start thinking about the next hexagon quilt soon!
This Friday and Saturday there is a quilt show in Toronto, Celebration of Quilts XII hosted by York Heritage Quilters' Guild. It should be a wonderful show. I'm looking forward to this one! Heck I look forward to all quilt shows because they are great places to be inspired and to socialize with friends old and new! If photography is permitted I hope to take some pictures to share with you! If you are in the area why not plan on attending the show? There will be quilts galore and more than twenty vendors in the Merchant's Mall!
I had mentioned that I've switched to a new computer and had some issues with my camera and software but all is sorted and I'm taking pictures like crazy. I thought I would leave you with a picture of baby Jinx! He is a cutie-pie for sure but I just wish he would spend more time sleeping and less time on my sewing table stealing my sewing tools!
Time for me to make a cuppa and get some work done. Until I post again, happy sewing!
