Then, I tried the blocks on point:
Then I tried something a little different - larger squares:
|Larger Squares in Rows|
The larger squares are composed of four smaller squares.
|Larger Squares On Point|
My daughter also suggested a combination of big and small squares, but I didn't try that out, yet.
I had been hoping the red fabric would work out, but, I think it doesn't set off the blocks the way I had hoped it would. Neither does the green. Wrong shade of green, I think. The blue fabric seems best, but I will need to buy more of it. Of course, I could do a really scrappy quilt and have different colored sashing!
So, my questions are: which background? Rows or on point? Big squares or small?
Oh, and my daughter sent me her journal doodles for this week:
|Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday|
Today, she felt better and went to the office. One of her former supervisors asked her if she'd like to have a leather jacket that the former supervisor was giving away; daughter said it fitted her just fine and she was happy to receive it.
There was an email from the Personnel Department at work, informing me that they had received the retirement papers I had filed and asking confirmation on something. It is a sign that they are working on the application, so I was happy to send a reply in response.
In the evening, I called cousin P and friend R to chat with them. And video chatted with my daughter.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Daughter is feeling better
- She received a free leather jacket
- They are working on my retirement papers
- Being able to play with fabric
- Getting a few things crossed off my to do list!
