I promised some photos of some things I can show you. Both of these are just patterns that I was trying out. I'm not at all sure what to do with them - but wanted to see how they would look. I chose a really dark red for the half square triangles and used 'leaders and enders' from Bonnie Hunter for the 4 patches. I need to find a lovely quilting pattern to go in the white diamond that emerges. Ideas?
I had a nice pink-ish batik which worked well for the center and corners of this table runner. These are some of the string pieced reproduction fabric strips I have been making (I couldn't just throw them away!)
So you see I am doing something. :-)
