Making a bit more progress on my 'Field & Forest' quilt. I haven't had a lot of time to work on this and have just been passing through the studio and stitching up one or two blocks at a sitting. Sometimes when waiting for the tea kettle to boil. Sometimes to recover from mopping the floor. Then a soft chair becomes an oasis and my quilt project a happy little respite.
I am also finding it immensely satisfying to be able to use up a bunch of scraps, odds and ends and left-over jelly-roll strips. The colors seem to go together in a weird sort of way. The green ties everything together, I think. Once I removed the blue blocks the colors worked better. Funny, because it started out as a summer themed quilt (with the cool blues and greens), but then was transformed into "fall". I will have to do something else with the blue blocks now.
These seams are just begging for some feather-stitching and fancy embellishment though, don't ya think?
