Projects started in the Path of Least Resistance blogs from May 11th and May 18th have evolved. Take a look.
Marny…..lots of construction decisions were made up on the design wall since the 18th. The pieced blocks with unequal sashing were placed into several trial positions. The aqua fabric with the lasso type print was the most active. To “balance” the blocks in a column this fabric was distributed “evenly.” Block 1,3, and 5 have two pieces each of that fabric and blocks 2 and 4 have only one. Block 3 has the largest pieces of it so it was placed in the center. The blocks were spun around to get a “path” of curves established without repeating the shape. Repeating the arc was too distracting.
The blocks were sewn together with background sashing in between staggering their placement much like the original little sketch. The excessive fabrics were trimmed off. The edges were then folded under at a variety of widths to test which would look best. This is what remains.
Quilting lines, thread color, and binding or no binding are a few of the decisions remaining in the process.
Jill... We pick up after the blocks are sewn together. Square them up.
Stitich around the edges. I used just a plain stitch but it could be decorative. These can be used as bookmarks, gift tags or whatever.... Embellish as you like.
The following photos show other fabric selections. Squares could be made into pins. The designs are the surprise and can be repieced however many times you heart desires.
