The last time I checked in with the QAL, we were up to 6. Now we're up to 8 being done, and I changed Block 3 (the background fabric), and added to Block 1 to make it the right size.
Here's the new and improved Block 3
While I really liked the herringbone fabric as the original background, once I saw the blocks together, it just didn't seem right for the quilt as a whole. And I'm pretty proud of myself, because I didn't redo the block completely - I kept the entire fireplace intact and just moved the wreath over.
And here's block 7
And Block 8
And here's all 8 together. What do you think - did I make the right choice by changing the background fabric for Block 3 (you can see it here)?
