Below is blocks two, three and four. Block three looked good before I cut the pieces and sewed them together. There just isn't enough contrast in the centre pinwheel for my liking. No unpicking will be occurring though. I am just going to see how it fits in the whole quilt when all the blocks are done.
I have taken a picture of all the blocks together. I am slightly in love with the Kona Maize solid I am using. I love it with all the colours I have picked so far.
Next up is something sort of special, sort of insane. I asked one of my sister-in-laws if she would like a quilt. She said yes and we bought some of French General's Rural Jardin. The pattern is called Delectable Mountains. I love how the first block turned out. There is an insane amount of triangles for each block and they are on the smallish side. I have to make 30 blocks. Yes 30!!!!! I have no idea how I will stay motivated but motivated I must be. I don't have an official deadline but I am thinking I should set myself one just so I get it finished.
Anybody got any tips on keeping the motivation going?
I know I lost my mojo a bit because while cutting out my quilt along blocks I cut myself not once but twice with the rotary cutter. Smart eh? Geez Louise do they sting. Lucky not too much damage to me or the rotary cutter.
Now I am off to do some cutting out of small triangles.
I will leave you with a very cute saying from my 6 year old son. We were out driving and were merging onto the highway where the speed limit is 110 km/h when this voice pipes up from the back of the car "Accelerate like you love it Dad!". Yeah he loves watching car racing.
