I call this my "Christmas Cactus": This is ONE block: waaay too many pieces for me. As you can well see, too many points will be cut off when I add borders. (The original plan was to make a whole lap quilt--some 144 of those little flowers--hah!) That plan exploded!!! Now it is to be a Christmas Medallion wallhanging for my entryway.
Here is the next phase--more green--borders......
I felt it was too dark--so added these little bands of white with green
AND: Now it languishes on my wall...like this:
I added the rest of those string blocks plus little scraps of red from those points (well, they WERE points to begin with anyway) and am rearranging, trimming, and measuring....and so it stands for now. (Not yet sewn together just pinned there--waiting...)
In the meantime (in between time...ain't we got fun???): TA-DAH....
A new "Snakey was born with the rest of those green scraps; scissor cut as I really did my arm/shoulder in with rotary cutting...that will have to be addressed in the future I think; I am resorting to tearing fabric for strips (and snipping the resultant strings--peeling them away--and perhaps going back to measuring, tracing lines with a pencil and then sewing--like the old pre-rotary days!!).
And next to it a pink one I made for a month I missed for RSC13....
And that's where I stand for now....later, Julierose, La Blageuse
