Marny here…time for Part 2. See Part 1 here.
|This is where we left off. Since this layout is cute, finishing seems right.|
|One thing to be aware of is these two units are not the same height, |
therefore some trimming needs to take place to make the layout work.
Just ½'' is trimmed from all the taller units.
|The two middle rows are pretty straightforward now that they are trimmed.|
|Units in the middle rows are sewn. |
(Just rows are sewn, the rows are not sewn to one another yet.
They need background pieces sewn to their sides/ends still.)
|Note the ends of the rows do not line up exactly. |
The rows need to be staggered just a bit to keep
the dark verticals where they belong.
|A "background" fabric is now starting to be incorporated. |
It is a black with mutidirectional white ovals.
2 ½'' wide background pieces were sewn to four short pieces
bringing them up to size, and makes sewing by rows possible.
See above and below.
|More background pieces added. |
The narrow strips are 2 ½'' wide and long enough to extend beyond the interior rows. The two inserted between the color units
in the top and bottom rows are 2 ½'' x 6 ½''.
The eight "square" background pieces are all 4 ½'' tall,
four are 5'' wide and four are 4 ½'' wide.
The rows are ready to complete and be sewn to one another.
Till Tuesday…cooler weather is returning so…
