Progress ...

Well, I can proudly report that I have successfully pumped gas for the second time and resolved the chirping smoke detector - woohoo, technology won't best me (least not this week;) ) Above are three postcards for the guild exchange using the leftover triangles from many of the blocks I made for THEE quilt. Nice to put them to use and not just toss these wee scraps, and I think they look pretty good even if I say so myself! !
On the left is the remade version of THEE quilt, and on the right is the first version. I felt the colours of the centre block and pinwheels were too insipid so I did some more unsewing and put them back together. Personally I think the second version works better! Now, here's hoping I have enough fabrics left to create the border, which extends the pattern and colour scheme. After the appliques I'm hoping I'll be hand quilting by January!

AMAZING what a difference a little colour change makes. It looks wonderful!!!

I like both versions very much.....it would have been hard for me to choose to unstitch! Can't wait to see the outer border! It's really coming along quickly, too.....way to go!

I like the remade version the best. Beautiful quilt!

I like the second version best....I agree, the first is too muted. Is this a published pattern? I would be interested to know more about it.
