I did all the prep for this quilt by Linda Brannock. And I appliqued four centers. And then it got put aside until today. You can see that I am not taking my color cues from Linda. I've got vibrant greens, yellows, oranges, and browns from light to very dark. Hers is called Homespun Prairie. Mine is Prairie Sunflowers.
A small sampling of the blocks; these are the eight I have the centers done.
Each time I start a new project, I start an index card, noting the name, design source (me or someone else), dates worked on, etc. Here's the one for this quilt in progress. (Bet you wondered how I knew this was 20 years old!)
I also noted the four centers I appliqued today on the back of the card. When the quilt is finished (hopefully before another 20 years pass!), I will add the end date and the finished size.
It was quite a treat to see fabrics from 20 years ago; 25 greens, 25 oranges/yellows, and 25 browns. 75 different fabrics so far! I now have this out where I can see it more frequently, so perhaps I will be more apt to work on it. I also have the setting and backing fabrics in the bag with the book, pattern pieces, etc. Luckily this is not one of the projects I started long ago and now no longer like!
Happy October, everyone!
