RAINY SATURDAY LOZENGE BEGINNING
Here is the start of my Lozenge Quilt piece; I am using all Asian themed prints (of which I have way too many from long ago) and little black corners alternating with my tea-dyed white-on-white fabrics--I LOVE tea dying these--(tho' sometimes it's coffee with cinnamon sticks, too yummy.) [oh and please excuse that ugly lamp cord hanging in there--it's so dark out today--stormy and raining].
Inside that mauve plastic container are all of the 2.5" squares that I have collected for doing a postage stamp quilt....anxious to start on that, too--BUT--waiting until Georgie P. is done.
Here's my lovely geisha holding court ...I like her with black corners--we'll see how my tea colored ones look as I go along. As you can tell, my lozenge quilt will be horizontal instead of vertical--sigh.....I was able to use my GO!Baby cutter to precut all these pieces--YAY--no rotary cutting!
and here, some gold edged Ginko leaves blowing in the breeze.....
I will be alternating between this pattern and finishing up Georgie Peorgie's borders. Just so easily distracted am I? Wellll, I HAD to see how these lozenges would look.
Actually have 8 more sets of two started--these babies are time consuming but fun.
I am so elated that we are finally getting a rainy day--my poor mums --a lovely, dark maroon color that I just love given to me by a friend last year--are drying up and not blooming very well. I hope this cooling soft drink will revive them--- along with the last of my maroon and cheddar marigolds (now there's a good combo for a quilt!).
Hope you are enjoying your Saturday and finding some time for a little sewing.
Hugs to you all (don't forget my 2 giveaways on the last two posts before this)
