Sunday Recharge

I have been pretty quiet this building and quilting aren't a good mix. It's going to be that way for a little while.

I'm at a point where I have to make decisions to work on existing projects and that seems to be the problem...making decisions.

Remember these wonderful blocks?

I've been trying to decide on how I want to set them...they are my February UFO. I played in EQ7 for several hours last night but still haven't figured it out.

This is the fabric that helped me select the colors for the blocks. I'd like to keep the "floral feeling" going.

Here's the blocks in the setting the BOM designer put together.

Not sure that carries the "floral feeling"...

So several versions later I decided to try a chain block.

Still muddling through it in my head...

The next project is the Scrappy Dresdan Plate. I need to figure out the center of my flowers. I have one appliqued with a yellow center. Very pretty but the background is going to be yellow so I'm thinking that might not be the best choice...maybe I should try the navy print.

When I don't have any capacity to make decisions...I turn to a stocking kit.

The Santa Nutcracker is finished...I'm starting a blue nutcracker.

Very pretty BOM blocks, but I'm not sure of the settings. I don't think the first works. The second kinda does, but maybe too much green? The individual blocks seem to get lost in all the green. I haven't decided what to do for the centres of my plates yet. But they might end up as scrappy solids, or tone on tones. And, I've started my first stocking. Very exciting.
