1950s again...

All the blocks have borders around them now. I love this diagonal plaid-print.
I have the blocks on pin-boards to inspire me to keep working on them... I guess you know if they are out of sight, they are out of mind. I am trying to do the opposite.


Next I am adding blue spots around the stitcheries. Is it working? I plan to add some applique in the large "open" spaces.



I have drawn up a rough plan, but most things tend to evolve as we make them don't they? I'll just let it grow a bit before I decide on too much.
BTW, I am sticking to the list of four:
1. 1950s collection
2. Baltimore Album
3. Dollhouse BOM (not that I have thought about it for a few days)
4. Jo's Little Women Baskets needs to be finished... but I haven't thought about it either- I am machine piecing the 1950s at the moment
5. I guess I will be working on my designs for my "Ginger" quilt, but I want to start a miniature LoneStar quilt and the new applique pattern I bought at showcase.

Gosh, your machine must work in your sleep. Loving the Balitmore and the 1950s Sticheries. Today I made a list of 16, where some things need only 1 day to finish and others need 1 week. There may be a Xmas present or two in that list - vbg! Keep up the good work - I am very inspired by you. xxx Andrea

Are these from vintage patterns? I really, really like these.
