Linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced today with two WIPs.
Oakshott Leaves is coming along bit by bit. I had a Cunning Plan for assembly of this quilt but it turns out that it was more difficult than I thought (often the way of cunning plans), so I'm on to Plan v2. Meanwhile I have all nine leaves though.
Ignoring the stray threads, aren't those Oakshotts just lovely?
And since I made Big Red Triangles and rather fell in love with the red/acqua combination I am nearly finished this little mini. Maybe I should have cropped out my toes but I like quilt pics with just a glimpse (so often just fingertips) of the maker.
I have wanted to try flying geese for ages and this colour combination just shouted flying geese at me very loudly. They are small (1.5 inches) and some of the points are missing, but not so that it matters terribly. The other thing that I found was that when using the no-waste method for making flying geese (ie the fancy one that does four at a time) they weren't square on one side and I need to work out why. Maybe someone can tell me what I'm doing wrong?
I have to decide how to bind this quilt and currently the thoughts are no binding, binding in a contrasting colour - eg charcoal, or red binding on the acqua section and acqua binding on the red section. Still mulling this one over.
