Grand-daughter's Garden

I was curious to see how many more blocks need to be made before putting on the borders.  Sadly, a lot more than I figured.  About 20 more full blocks and a lot of half-blocks to bring it to queen size.

Can you see all the pink squares?  There is a method and placement for my blocks.  All the pink squares represent a darker block and are spread out in a pattern so that there is a nice flow of dark and medium colour blocks.  They weren't planned like this .... the pattern just evolved as the blocks got made.  Thank heavens for my design wall to help me think out my colour flow and placement. 

The fabrics on the right are there for border ideas.  Something plain and simple since there is so much happening in the middle.

I'm loving the look of this pattern.

Have a great day!

Love it! Is this another paper pieced project?

Connie said...

Wow, this is going to be so stunning. Looks like lots and lots of work!

If you made more blocks you wouldn`t need a boarder...I think it would be gorgeous without one...I think I said this before, and you would not have to make a boarder...but 30 or so more blocks would do it...LOL

They are going together pretty fast and those extra won't take that long at this pace. I like your plan-as-yog go.

Wow, aren't they looking gorgeous! Love those colours, I will be curious to see what you do for a border.....or if you have a border at all.

I also just discovered your blog.
The block you are using, is it paper pieceing?
