And another batch!
Only one from me this time. Probably too much pink, but I wanted to do a really big heart and I got rather carried away with colour… So unlike me, eh? Yet another scrappy heart, and yes, I can tell you exactly what I used each fabric for, in the unlikely event you’re curious.
The other 4 were made by the lovely Robin, a regular Ovarian Cancer contributor, who has brought some much needed actual piecing to the table, rather than my appliqué frenzy! I love those beautiful pale, gentle pinks, a great antidote to some of the rather strong colours I’ve, ahem, indulged myself with…
And now it’s time to stop, wait, and see what the mail brings me before I crack on with any more blocks. I may need to balance colour, fill gaps or add more of something or other. We’re halfway to the number we need now, so whatever happens, it won’t take long.
I love this bit. Opening mystery packages is fun!
I’ve made 4 so far and happy to post to you or will it be ok to pick up when u come in June ?
I can pick them up if it’s easier for you?
Easy both ways … I’ll post if I go to shops this week otherwise will wait for you to pick up as it would probably take the same amount of time then …
Okeydoke, works for me!
Thanks! I’m really enjoying this series.
I love the fabric in the very top of the pink heart. It’s so soft and gentle looking. All the squares are wonderful.
Yes! That one’s my favourite too.
Its no good I shall have to ask, where did all the pinks come from. Think that block might be pretty central in the final layout.
Yes, I’m afraid you’re right, I did go a bit bonkers. Either it has to be central, or I make the 4 corner posts big pink hearts, which would also work for a more restrained colour palette.
Would it help if I sent you photos of the ones I made?
I sent them by International standard over a week ago but I know the post can be slow and at least you’d be better able to plan your other blocks whilst waiting for them to arrive..
I reckon the mail is running 3-4 weeks from the US/Europe at present, so that would indeed help! At least then I’ll be able to see if I need to push the light or dark shades of teal more, or if we’re evenly balanced.
It is going to be fabulous!
I think it will be very pretty and individual 💗
loks like you’re well on the way!
I really am, and the blocks have come together very fast, which is nice.
It’s going to be so pretty!
It’s a great colour combination, isn’t it?
More lovely squares from your talented contributors. Nice!
There are fewer of us this year than in previous years, but the ones who have been able to join in are being very generous with their time and stash. The Rona has affected us all in different ways, but quilters have always been generous with their time and outreach.
That’s nice to hear, Kate. We’ve got another round of cases here. I currently know several people with COVID, thought fortunately none are hospitalized. It’s been a slog.
Yes… hearing someone you know has it no longer produces the same feelings of dread, and somehow people are returning to a semblance of normality.
