I've been plugging away.....!

Penelope and I have had a few play dates. I've enjoyed doing some free-form on Pine Grove. It's almost quilted, all I have are the setting triangles. I haven't decided how I shall approach those. Until then......

I finished the center block of Sprig Rose by Lorraine Hofmann. Funny how a picture can distort the colours. The fabrics are a tad darker than in the photograph. Hum....

I do like the way it turned out. I'm not sure how I want to proceed for the borders. So, I'm putting this project aside for a bit until an inspiration comes along. Until then, I'll work on finishing Market Day by Whimsical.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week. Thank you for stopping by!

That looks great! I'll look forward to seeing how you proceed. I have the same darn problem with photos--the colors never seem to turn out quite the way it looks "in person." I'm relieved, in a way, that you have the same problem, even with all your photography experience--lol!
