Girly Goodness...

This was the view that greeted me on Sunday morning when I walked into the studio. Sunshine was pouring in my east window, the light diffused by my sheer curtain, and all of my fabric strips waiting patiently for my hand. It was a cheerful sight, indeed. I didn't start right away. It was mid-afternoon when I returned.
I began assembling triangles into pairs to make new small blocks. After I trim the blocks to ensure that they're square, I'll assemble the small blocks into one large block. I laid this set out just to give you an idea of what the a finished block might look like.
When they're all assembled, they will sit next to each other to form diamonds within the blocks, too. All of them will be mismatched, but that really is the charm of this design, I think.
My love birds block was not the right size to sit at the center of all this girly goodness, so I decided to assemble a border comprised of all the patterns and colors of the blocks. I'll cut the border down to the right size after the blocks have all be assembled and squared up.

I'm really enjoying this process. It's always fun to work on a new pattern and then modify it to suit my own taste. I think the sun will set today on a finished quilt top.

I adore just the mere sight of your studio. Gets me so inspired I want to get to work on something myself! (I could take up residence in that room.)
