Here is the dark version of my Simple Symmetry quilts from Paula Nadelstern's class in May:
These blocks were made from the same fabric as "Day":
Try as I might, I could not get them to play nicely in one quilt so I made two. It's amazing how different the blocks look on light and dark backgrounds. They are simply quilted with variegated thread, using the walking foot. Someday, I'll tackle free motion quilting, maybe...
The other little bit I accomplished this week is the next block in Grandmother's Choice from Barbara Brackman's Suffragist Block of the Week:
I'm going to start piecing these blocks together in rows, just haven't decided what color I want to use yet, either a brown, black or something light. Maybe I'll know by next week.
Therapy continues and I'm feeling stronger each week. I had fun helping my beginning students select fabrics for their quilts--this week they will make their first block.
