I think those super simple rules are awesome! I should totally post them on my bulletin board in my sewing room. :) Love those 36-patch blocks, they look great together!
I totally agree...don't over think! This is going to look fantastic!
Sometimes those turn out to be the best blocks!They are looking good.
Love how they are coming along. Really, really fantastic!! I need to figure our how to post mine. LOL.
GORGEOUS!!!!! I love it.
Light versus dark is always a good rule to follow! Great rules to sew and admire, and not overthink, which can be hard at times. Hope you're having fun following your own rules, which should be a rule too.
i am loving the look of those blocks! great work!
They're looking good. Sometimes the most simple ideas give lovely results. I also smiled when I saw your Hexi bar graph on how many you've completed and how many you have to go. Excellent idea.Love that you are emphasizing the light/dark aspect of contrast in quilts. I've seen a lot of Farmer's Wife blocks lately that are just mush, because they don't understand the idea of value. While mush has its own look (think Kaffe Fassett blender quilts), I think that many traditional blocks call for some difference in contrast. Yours looks fab!Elizabeth E.http://occasionalpiece.wordpress.com
gorgeous blocks! I might have to try this strategy and see what I can come up with.
Great rule - great results! Your rule applies to my current project - thanks for passing it on! :)
very nice! hey, we have the same sewing machine :)
:) Good advice. Will try and remember that. Carol
Such good advice. Simple is often so much better! Thanks for the reminder, andthanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday. : ) (Your 36-patch blocks look great, btw.)
Oh, love your blocks :-) You're right, simple is best!
You're obviously doing something right, those blocks look great! I think we can all adapt that idea in our lives.
Cindy, your blocks look awesome! I like your rule of not overthinking. When organizing my sewing room today, I put aside some fabrics for more 36-patch blocks....need to pick up the pace ;-)
I love these blocks! I'm marking her quilt along for later when I don't have so many projects going. Your quilt is going to be fabulous!Jennifer :)
Wow, Cindy. These are really looking good! Keep up the great work!
very sage advice, and a gorgeous block - thanks for sharing
