Here is a picture of my quilt blocks thus far. The piece I have the blocks laid out on is the fabric I have chosen for the solid blocks that sit between the pieced blocks. Around the centre panel, we will be using a 'border' of 'courthouse steps' blocks, so I will be able to lighten up that area and transition into the darker colours quiet well. Right now that centre stands out rather starkly, doesn't it! Otherwise, I'm really happy with how it's looking. Apart from the centre, the rest of the fabrics are all 'Thimbleberries'. It's been a very frugal exercise so far. I think I've bought 4 fat quarters and about 3 meters of other fabric since the class started, all the fabric on the pieced blocks was from leftover stashed fabric from another quilt...that's a whole other story LOL.
We have the 'Courthouse Steps' and two other blocks to do before the top can be pieced together. One has some semi circle pieces...more hand piecing I suspect :)
