Ideas

Hello everyone,
I tried to "see", virtually, some colorful ideas with EQ5 software and I used only "Fans" for the firs row alternating with simple squares on the second row. The "Fans" here can be a Drunkards Path block.
On this setting I find scraps working well, I can use different prints for "Fans", but for now, this looks more consistent:

...and more consistent with the leafs on the same print:

 Also, I changed the Drunkards Path quilt block from a square in to a rectangle now 6"x8", (the long side can be more than 8" and will be more "pointy" look) rotating them and using different fabrics to have the contrast. I like it!
 Or this one...looks cute!

Well, until I'll start the real sewing, all the best for you my friends! 
Happy sewing!

A late rose

Lovely weather these days!
I was on my garden and discover a late shy, purple-red rose, so healthy, so pretty! I love it!
Went to a farm here around, spending precious time there on Thanksgiving Day with my old daughter.


Also having these thoughts about starting to quilt again!
After more than 3 years break, I feel it's time to start all over because I see a future quilt in every image and I see quilt blocks everywhere!
But I am thinking about some new ones...like how to combine the old and well known 9 Patch with Churn Dash - both of them endless possibilities and beautiful quilt blocks, using Drunkards Path block, in a big one, image new...



 It looks like this on EQ5!
I'll be back soon with a real block made from some...fabric! maybe a quilt...
Be happy and healthy, my friends!!
Happy sewing!
