Making More Princeton Plates...

I'm back to working on the quilt for Handsome. I thought all along that I
might make the centers using this creamy paisley fabric, which also appears
 in the "spokes" of the plates. I like how it keeps the blocks more neutral.
But, it's not going to be my quilt. I showed the two choices to Handsome...
and he prefers the blue centers. Alrighty, then. Blue it shall be.
(Although I might ask him one more time before I start the stitching.)

I have over half of the blocks finished (except the centers), and will be
finishing the rest soon. I'll show you more when I get to sashing them together.

What do you have planned for this week?
Are you working on something creative?
Whatever you have planned, I hope you have a little fun mixed in.

This quilt will be stunning. I like Handsome's choice (blue is my favorite) and the fact that he is involved with the decision making process of his quilt. Blissful Stitching Dear...
