If you just want to see the Sunday Stash, scroll to the bottom ;-)
There are two more rows, a pink one and a brown one. Again, so?
Well, it currently measures 60X84 with just these seven ROYGBIV rows. A nice lap size. If I add the other two rows, it will be 60X108 and that is just a very weird size. So think on that while I show you the last two month's of blocks that I just finished.
Here is September's row which was reds with a pop of gold.
Here is October's yellow with a pop of orange:
In case you've forgotten, here is the pink row
I thought I'd put the pink at the top, as it would come before red, since you add white to red to get pink.
Then I figured I'd put the brown at the bottom. I love the teddies fabric, scraps from Dayna's first quilt I made her, the cows, from two runners, one for an aunt, and another for an uncle. There's a rayon challis floral fabric from which I made a skirt centuries ago for myself, and the middle pink 'ring' fabric is from my mum's 70th birthday quilt, another scrap from my niece's housewarming quilt...so you start to see the memories just this one row evokes.
Julie of Pink Doxies suggested (yesterday we met up down here in Florida, what fun!)
|Food!! On the left is cake we had at The Bubble Room Restaurant -- MacGyver's hand is there so you get the idea of the MASSIVE piece you get! On the right is a delicious dish I made this past week, Veggie Lasagna Zucchini Boats.|
Okay I'm salivating...where was I? Oh yeah, Julie! She suggested a rainbow-striped fabric to add to the left and right sides of the quilt so it extends it horizontally. I like that idea; I had already thought about running the pink row and the brown row down those sides, but because the blocks are not the same size (one is 12" square, the other 8X12") that doesn't work and doesn't look right.
I also thought maybe I'd put the brown row on the back; I usually do interesting quilt backs anyhow. That would mean the length would only be 96, and if I extended each side with a rainbow-theme fabric by 12" I'd have 84" across.
Your thoughts are most welcome. One other question, what do you think about alternating the run of each row? i.e. row 1 goes light to dark, but the second row would run dark to light? I will try that tomorrow morning perhaps in the early morning before the dogs get up!
