Progress on the blue monday quilt





Hi Randy Danto, this post is mainly for you.
Do you remember the dark blue fabric that was intended for the backing of the red hexagonquilt?
I've never been able to put the scissors in the huge amount and hoped to find a spectacular idea to use it.
And last week, while lurking Stella Rubin's website, i saw the antique quilt, dark blue background, close to mine and that bold chrome yellow  hour glasses, bingo!!
And there will be plenty for at least two more tops!
Randy, you're an angel....
Today's weather is nice, dry and warmer, but bad again for the weekend.
Take care you all quilters, happy quilting!

PS: Not enough fabric from my favorite chrome yellow, so it's a mix of several ones but that doesn't bother me. No progress on the japanese blocs until now.

Willemke you nailed it! Prachtig, vooral dat geel! Stunning. Hier is het weer, uiteraard, ook niet veel beter. Ach wat maakt het uit. Zondag zit ik in Zutphen te luisteren naar Brigitte Giblin! Bisous

And I hope you're feel much better these days, too!

Heel erg mooi! Het doet mij juist denken aan een zonnige drag in Staphorst.

Prachtig, dat hele donkerblauwe met dat frisse geel. Enig project.

Leuk dat zonnige geel tegen die donker blauwe achtergrond. Leuke blokken ook. Volgens mij wordt het uiteindelijk een hele leuke top. Groeten Aurora

Will, I'm glad to see you blogging again. It was nice spending a bit of time with you in Nantes and eating at potato restaurant with Joes and Isabeau.
