Well, the quilt is all prepped for appliqué and ready for my post op stitching. I find it much easier to balance colors and fabric if the blocks are up on my design wall, so I wanted to get this finished in time to put up another project that needs to get put together in the next week. I am very happy to have this finished and what you don't see is that there are another 84 leaf blocks that make up the border. I have 76 of these blocks prepped but I am leaving the last few until I know which greens I still need to balance everything out. I am really feeling the bug to start something in some bright summery colors as I have been working in this more greyed palette for awhile so I am looking at ideas for my next start. I am thinking something pieced and appliqued for my guest room that is a bit wacky and fun. Any great ideas? I have ordered the pattern pictured below and am thinking it may be the one.
