A few moment here,
a few moment there,
I've finally finished block #7
of the applique blocks
on my Roseville Album Appliqué Quilt.
Now I have
eight blocks done in the center section
One to go!
Yes, I have the other blocks,
but I'm only looking at one section at a time!
I've found, in a sampler, that the first and last blocks are the hardest.
The first one because
there are so many choices of where to start.
In a couple of samplers,
I've actually redone the first block
because as my style evolved the first block no longer fit in.
The last block is also a challenge
because it's the last chance to make sure everything is tied together.
You don't want a single color, pattern,
or design element to be left dangling,
looking like it doesn't belong.
It's the opportunity to make everything connect.
I have the last block left to design and cut out.
I'll do that in a couple weeks when I head home again.
But this weekend I'm taking Running Man
on a mini weekend get away.
We're heading to the top of Pike's Peak.
Until Next Time-
