This past week or so I decided to at least begin thinking about getting them together into a quilt top. Earlier in that thought process I also decided to incorporate some printed red work blocks that had been hanging around in my stash for ages.
After much figuring I finally worked out how to get the 7.5 inch red work blocks into a row with the 5.5 blocks, complicated by the fact that the red work blocks will only be in every other row. I also needed to get a lattice worked in between them as well. Lots of graft paper drawing and crossing outs, but I finally got it figured out to my satisfaction.
And here we are 4 rows done. I have 10 rows in mind, but given the 48 inch width of the top I may end up only making 9 rows for the length. Not sure if I will add borders yet. I'm pretty pleased with it so far. So, will just have to see where this goes to finish it off.
