Progress being made on the Grandmother's Choice Block of the Week! Block number 2 is Amethyst - Suffrage. I had a slightly difficult time peicing this block. Never really dealt with a Y seam on machine before. I know the hexies in Nana's Flower Garden have Y seams, but handstitching and machine stitching are two different things! I had to rip out seams a couple of times to get this one!
But with endurance, I manage to get my 2 blocks done! I'm so pleased! The seams lay flat, and I'm liking these colors together. This is fabric I've had in my stash for sometime. I'm quickly running out of the gold, but am sure I'll be able to find another gold color print that will suffice.
Here's the Amethyst and Grandmother's Choice side by side. What do you think? Poor picture quality, but the white print in the Grandmother's Choice has just enough gold to pull them together in real life. At least to my point of view! I will be putting sashing in as well.
Then I have two completed Union Square blocks. Easy-Peasy! They stitch up fast! I love how they came out!
And here is the contrasting twin. I really am digging the thought of having 2 completed tops when I'm done! This is a fun quilt along and the history of the women's suffrage movement makes for a good read as well!
On a final note. If you've noticed the Grandmother's Choice badge on the side bar, here is the html code to coopy and paste to your gadget bar on your blog should you decide to join along!
