The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and I’m ready to head outside for a bit of puttering. We’re getting very close to the finish of the The Fight For Women’s Rights quilt project. Forty-one blocks are complete, with only eight blocks remaining.
Block Thirty-Nine: Endless Stairs
Substitution Alert! The Endless Stairs block really needed a focal print fabric. Guess what? That’s right… I don’t have a focal print for this project. I substituted a pineapple block for what I considered, if truth be told, a complete yawner of a block.
Block Forty: Art Square
Tweaking Alert! Once again a block that featured a large and plain center patch requiring a focal print. Instead, I drafted a foundation pattern that gave a little more interest to the center. Hmm… looking at the completed block, I’m reminded of a variation on the Maltese Cross – don’t ask me where my thoughts were roaming that day.
