I'm learning bits here and there about color and fabric choices. Here is the progress my newest project. I really like this block and I love the fabric. As you can tell in the top block, the one fabric does not contrast enough with the background to really stand out like it should. Live and learn. The border has a lot of flying geese of which I've made 4 I think. The next thing I'd like to do in my sewing room is to add a design wall. It will have to be small but it will be better than the nail I have in the wall with a hanger on it!
I used this nifty notion. It's called a Quilters Magic Wand. You lay it from corner to corner and draw sewing lines.
