And here are all the blocks together, not quite finished with the right and left blocks in the center.
I cut some cabbage roses from the fabric Debra sent me. I really have in mind to surround that center photo with flowers somehow but I don't want to overwhelm it. I've also got more linens, and some beautiful hand crochet trim I would like to use, since it was made by one of the ladies in the quilt.
Just keep playing around & see what develops.
The last month has been crazy, with planning for my trip in October and then right on its heels, the Houston trip. Also, it's the end of our fiscal year at work and it's always a stressful time. I'm doing an awful lot of garment sewing on the weekends and trying to keep up with the TAST (I'm 2 stitches behind) and CQJP (pretty much current).
I think things will calm down after August.
But, I did get a promotion at work. That's the good news! And, there isn't any bad news, knock on wood.
