Design Wall Monday - Jigsaw Pieces

It was a busy weekend.  Drama Teen had a volleyball tournament that ran both Saturday and Sunday.  Saturday wasn't bad, but the building they played in was so cold yesterday.  We were all tired by the time we got home last night.  I was in bed by 8:30 and morning still came way to early.  


There's not much going on in the sewing room as we've had a lot of stuff going on during the week too.  I did finish three more Jigsaw blocks.

I would have finished a fourth, but I got one of the block pieces turned, so had to do a bit of un-sewing.  There wasn't time to finish it after that.  I've also been trying to work out the color graduations for the lower right hand corner of the quilt.  Drama Teen and I weren't happy with the original layout. 




We were trying to get the colors to fade from dark to lighter as you moved right, so the lower right corner just wasn't working.  I had such a limited choice of fabrics in the red-violet/pink category that we decided to find a few more choices and rework that corner.  I think we finally got it worked out this weekend. 



It's still not perfect, but I think it fades better than the original layout. Drama Teen has given it her approval. If she's happy then I am too.  I had hoped to finish Jigsaw this month.  That's not likely to happen at this point, but it's at least farther along than it was at the beginning of the month. 

That's it for my design wall this week.  Check out all the other pretty projects posted over at Patchwork Times.

  3. I loathe too cold places, especially when you are just sitting--so uncomfortable! Cold restaurants are the worst.
    Pretty colors all the way on Dt's quilt. Progress is progress!

  5. Isn't it amazing how cold just makes you tired and want to sleep. No wonder bears hibernate :). Love the way you worked out the new colour gradient. It should be spectacular.

  6. I definitely like the new color gradation - the first one was a bit too orangey. And you're right - it might not be done, but it's moving closer to done!
