Posting has been a little scarce on my blog this past week - things do tend to slow down for my own piecing and quilting a little when I get back to work and my quilting schedule returns to normal. I will endeavour to get here as often as I can though :-)
This week my 30's Dear Jane quilt took a different direction. I had started to set a few of the blocks on point with white setting squares as alternate blocks, but it was starting to look too 'white' so I unpicked what I'd done.
I thought it could look nice to set them together with sashing strips like in the original quilt, but make them a little wider and have coloured cornerstones. So, I'm mirroring the trip around the world theme with the cornerstones, and I feel sure I'll like this arrangement a lot better. This time around I don't plan to make the corner triangles - after all, I made them all last time, and there's no need to make the whole quilt again. If I can find something I like, I may add a 30's print border and then still do the scallops ...
Let's see if I change my mind again :-)
