i was procrastinating *just a little* bit on my Full Stop quilt for RSC21. finally yesterday, i buckled down and worked out the kinks, and really moved this quilt forward. very, very happy with it now!!!
(there are a few quilts to be seen if you check out the hashtag #fullstopquiltalong, there are a few of these RSC21 quilts popping up over on instagram)
first up was to decide on the layout of this quilt. i know aqua is coming up yet this year, and i wanted to work in the aqua and BOTH blues. so far that lime green (between the yellow quotation marks and the green brackets) is the only "place holder" row.
hopefully, it doesn't look too out of place (it will probably fall smack dab in the middle of the quilt) or too belly-button-ish.
last week A had an orthodontist appointment, so we took the opportunity to go to a fabric store. (our LQS closed a few years ago, and we don't really have one in handy distance anymore). i'll admit to purchasing the purple and orange yardage for this quilt; i just don't really have those colors in abundance in my stash...
you can see that i changed up the red exclamation points a bit- a combination of not liking the angled version, and being too lazy to figure out the freezer paper directions. once the exclamation points are sewn together in the row, they won't look so chunky.
the semi-colins did get a bit lost in the purple, but i have no complaints about the blue asterisks!
