Squares


The pink and green blocks are all completed and sewn together - I'm still not quite sure about it but I think it'll grow on me once I've put a border on.

The allotment is now going great guns after all this good weather - we're getting quite a few strawberries now, and the raspberries will be ready soon too. We go down to the allotment on our bikes - it's not very far but it's downhill on the way there and uphill on the way back! I keep thinking that I should cycle to work - it's only 4 miles, but there is an even bigger hill on the way back - oh well, maybe tomorrow.

Pink and green squares are looking good! - what d'you think you're going to do for a border? I reckon a green border the thickness of the different colours, then a row of little squares in all the different colours used probably about the dimensions of the thickness of those rounds again and then a thicker green border maybe three times that measurement and finally a pink binding - ok sorry - tell me to butt out and mind my own business :o))))

Biking uphill, ugh!

Hi Fiona, the pink and green squares look lovely. So often something outside our comfort range does take a bit of getting used to..*S*

I like this quilt. It is very eye catching. Hope it grows on you.

I like it too. Suggest you audition the border( s ) by placing them behind, before you actually cut them. I think that the colours in the squares look great together.Cheers Alison.

It looks like bubble gum. Great colors. Your allotment sounds like you'll have vegetables before you know it.

Hi Fiona,
Thank you for your compliment...,
I like the colors of your quilt - looking forward to seing it finished...
as for the biking - go for it :o),
I hope I will also start biking once in Slovakia - we will be practically living on the biking path, so it would be sin to avoid it, wouldn't it :o)

Well, I'm not sure what you think, but I like it! Pink and green are a great combination. I made a quilt with those colors myself! It will grow on you as you live with it.

Love the castle pictures! Looks just like what we Americans think England looks like. Just like all the movies I watch about old timey Britain!!

Love the ranges of greens and pinks -- not just sweet pale pink and pale green, but hot pink and acid green too. Great color choices.

Hi Fiona -- me again :)
When I pin baste, I just do the pins by hand, no tool. I've read that they're helpful, but so far I'm doing OK with the old-fashioned way.

Thanks Fiona, for looking at my blog and commenting! Looks like I am doing it just for you! I am enjoying your blog and many others as well. Such a fun way to feel the pulse of quilters and their projects and lives. I hope you find and enjoy the Maisie Dobbs book. Parts of it could be taken from your blog entry! Take care!
