Getting Ready

Yesterday, I tided some of the fabric I've been using on this project....I'm getting excited about putting the pieces together...
 This is what I'm planning to use for the peak a boo border
around the center section...it is a little deeper red than
shows here...


here are some possible backgrounds for the center blocks
 

And here are a lot of small pieces I can use for the patchwork
 
I will be happy to see the end to the applique portion of this project...
Getting excited...

Often, the prep work takes longer than the actual project! I'm looking forward to visiting again and seeing your work!

don't be daunted by the centre...........once the parts are prep it should stitch up pretty well....nice choices......

Centre block dtitching is the easy part - on e you have it ready to stitch you will have it done in no time.

Love that red! It will so "pop." I too am anxious to pick the colours for the rest of the quilt!

The red looks good as do your backgrounds too.
