This was the result of working late last night. As usual, I was apprehensive. With the help of Denyse Schmidt's brilliant design work and half inch seams, the ring blocks came together very well. I will admit they were not perfect, but I need to embrace a bit of wonkiness in my life.
I didn't have too much rippling of the Kona Coal or rings since I starched and eased the edges to match the rings to the background. The rings were a bit bigger than they should be. A lot of steam pressing helped too. Any wrinkles will crinkle nicely when this is hand quilted.
While I am somewhat allergic to pins, I think they were necessary.
A border of half square triangles will be added and I will/should have a finished top by Friday.
So what color perle cotton should I use? Aqua? Green? Varigated?? Saw this and I am intrigued. Anyone familiar with the brand Lisbeth? I am leaning toward a violet.
Depending on how much work gets done on the Katie Jump Rope version, I will be committing to this quilt along too.
