I pulled out the 2008 Designer Mystery BOM from the Fat Quarter Shop. The blocks have been completed since 2009 and have been hanging around in one of those very large Ziploc bags that has totally been in my way for the longest time. A couple of days ago I moved that bag - again - and thought, "What in the world is in this thing?" Turns out it was the mystery blocks and the finishing kit. I'm cutting up the finishing kit now to get it done!
That red, which is a gorgeous red with green polka dots, is probably one of my most favorite fabrics ever. I'm thinking about switching the red and green -- put the green in the sashings and the red for the outer border. This is the Peace on Earth line by 3 Sisters for Moda.
If you have any thoughts on this, I'd appreciate it. The same yardage was included for both pieces, so that won't be a problem. Because the blocks are so busy, I was thinking the green might tone them down a bit, and the outer border wouldn't feel lost.
Your opinions, please!!
We've had two sizable earthquakes here this weekend. The 5.1 Friday night face planted me on the floor. I had just swung my legs over the side of the bed and had all of my weight on the one foot that was on the floor when it struck. Because I was off balance, I went tumbling. I decided just to stay there until the rolling stopped. It was hard slam following by 10-15 seconds of significant rolling. Needless to say, I was up for most of the night waiting for the big one! I'm such a weenie with earthquakes. Penny stayed right next to me all night, practically tripping me up as I moved about. She was real whiny. Yep, she's a weenie, too.
With hardly any sleep on Friday night, I decided Saturday night to go to bed earlier. I was laying there reading and all of a sudden Penny started barking. About three seconds later, "wham," another one. This one was a hard jolt and then hard shaking as opposed to the rolling motion. It was only a 4.1 but felt as strong as the one Friday night.
I don't know. Those occasional hurricanes in Louisiana are starting to look a lot better. At least you have days of warning before they land. Earthquakes come out of the blue! You'd think after 20 years I'd be use to them! You'd think!
