Tone It Down Progress!




I have the first two rows finally sewed together. It took me much longer than I expected. I'm trying so hard to keep same fabrics away from each other. That's so hard to do! I must admit that a sashing has the same fabric next to it in one of the blocks. I'm going to ignore it and continue on! I already moved some blocks after sewing them together. I got all sorts of fraying fabric. It just wasn't worth it.

Here's another view.

I'm happy that everything is matching. Piecing this together is a little more difficult than I expected.
I'll keep at it and get it done eventually. Three more rows to go!

I think my next project is going to be a whole lot easier!

  2. Looking good, Rosemary! In the big scheme of things when the quilt is finished, I'm sure you will never notice any fabrics that match.

    1. Thanks, Em! I'm glad you said that about not noticing the fabric match. I was telling myself that but wasn't really sure!

  3. It is looking so good Rosemary. There looks like so much piecing in one block! I can also spend a lot of time fussing with positioning etc but have had to concede that sometimes, as long as it isn't a dominant fabric it is ok to leave it as is!!

    1. You made me feel better by saying that! I just can't rip it out and sew it again. It never looks the same! Thanks for your nice comment!

  4. Rosemary, it looks beautiful! Such tiny piecing! It seems like it would be impossible to totally plan out how not to have twin fabrics side by side. They are so soft colored that it is not noticeable. It's really just gorgeous!

    1. Thanks, Lara, you made me feel better! It's so easy to mix up fabrics. There are so many! They are all on the light side. I think it will be fine. Thanks for visiting!

  5. I love this quilt. I'd have one underway if the cutting were not such a daunting prospect!

    1. You're so right, Dora! So much cutting and piecing with tiny pieces! It's a great quilt but so much work! I'm glad I'm finally finishing up!

  6. Rosemary it looks awesome. It is so hard not to repeat fabric close together but you are doing a great job.

Doily and Slabs

I just finished my knit doily. I think it came out pretty good. I didn't like sewing on the border but it wasn't that bad. This...
