It's bitterly cold here and the snow is blowing, but beautiful.
The snow plow trucks are scraping and salting outside
and here inside, the needle is flying.
But it's not the cold/snow that's freaking me out.
I just did an inventory on the blocks remaining to do
in my Flags of the American Revolution quilt project.
There are just three blocks left!
The last block is a little scary when I think about it.
It's the 'signature' block,
where I'll applique my first initial/last name
onto a 10x20 inch block of fabric in 1 1/2 inch tall letters.
OK, I'm not really FREAKING out,
but freaking out.
My last name is 11 letters.
And, to top off the 11 letters issue?
The block's length is in the quilt vertically.
If I had had ANY forethought,
I would have stitched one of my other, already done blocks in the other layout configuration and switched their placement.
Well, I didn't have the forethought &
I'm not redoing any of my finished blocks,
so I've laid out A.L.L.
my (so far) freezer paper letters in three different ways.
I have a preference, but
which configuration do you like the best?
| option A - last name all down the side,|
with or without the second, bigger star
|option B - last name across and down|
|option C - last name curved|
hand-embroidery would be another option.
Anyway, I'd appreciate your opinion
and look forward to hearing your wisdom.
So I'm putting aside the freaking out, and
back to snow play time for me!
