At last!!!!

Woohoo -- now that I'm "over the hump" into the second half of the year, some of my B-a-D color sets are finally getting complete! There will be a couple more sets wrapping up in the next week or so, too. It's been hard to be sooooo patient -- one hundred-and-ninety-some blocks sewn already! :)

This green set is really blah -- it'll need some sparking up -- but I am accomplishing my goal of using tired fabrics from my stash. Since the blocks are all pretty close to the same size, I'll probably sash up the smaller ones, and then come up with some interesting alternating blocks.

The red-white-and-blue set is better, brighter. I'm thinking along the lines of doing four more filler blocks to enlarge the layout, and then navy blue sashing, since I have a nice big piece I can use. No hurry on this one -- since Fourth of July has already passed, I have until next June to get it done.
