My off the wall post is compromised by the fact that pollen is trying do me in. I have an appt with my doc this afternoon since I have tried every naturopathic remedy and technique to beat it, but the pollen is winning. I will link to Nina Marie's blog so you can see some other fantastic stuff.
All I have done is to get the Japanese Magnolias blown up. I cut the original page size print into 9 sections. I took it to Office Depot for enlargement. While there, the girl scanned the pieces into the computer and then sent it to their printer to be printed on an 8.5 x 11 sheet. I realized I could probably do that with my Photoshop. I just took some classes this month and am beginning to play with the program. I see great potential in it. The pattern turned out to be about 25 x 33.
The other thing I have been creating is my Tea Towel Quilt. It is at a stage where I need to make a decision. Maybe you can help me here.
The Bobby is a blue, I have a blue that will work in the quilt if I use it sparingly. I have mocked up a Star Chase block from the Block Lotto. I modified the Star Chase to be just the Chase part!
Look closely at it, does the blue work? Or do I need to continue with the green-grey? I tried to be subtle with the blue.
Here is what the piece would look like with the Chase blocks around the center.
And I would have one or two more borders out from the chase blocks. Probably low key ones as the center is pretty busy and I don't want to pull your eye out from the beautiful tea towel!
