This project is to be a kotatsu cover for my daughter Norie.... about three years late. The center area will be covered by the table top. I really don't have any space large enough to lay it out for planning, and looking at the center area, I wish I had not put the light blue floral next to fabrics containing blues. I wonder if it would be worth the trouble to un-sew and replace that block, if it will not be seen anyway.
I have pieced enough blocks for two more rows. Then I will think about adding a couple of rounds of borders. I am still not sure as to how big this should be. I have a few rather light florals and am hoping to place them closer to the corners where they will be less likely to get food spills.
Just imagine having enough space to get it all laid out and then sewed together without mistakes. On a day like today. I could have taken it to church before choir practice and laid it out on the floor in the fellowship hall. No choir for nearly a year now, and the church is closed.
Hanging on the fence in the afternoon shade, the colors look a bit dull. I can't help comparing this with my blogging friend, Kim, of "Sarah Lizzies". Her posts are always so full of bright colorful florals. Oh well, I will just keep on keeping on and look forward to snuggling under this as I quilt it.
