Some More Marcelle

Well she continues to grow and the end of the top is in sight and soooo close but still so far, just chain piecing my little heart out.

I was undecided yesterday as to whether or not do the crosses that are in the pattern for the second last big border.  This morning I caved and decided to follow the instructions (I'm such a good girl).

I'm just not sure about the busyness of this quilt, there is a whole lot going on and I keep thinking that maybe I should have included a plain border between the geese and the bricks to tame it down a little.  I do still love the centre of the block and think it would make a lovely pillow.

Mama's China continues to grow - it's quick and easy and doesn't require the focus that Marcelle does.

And last night I finished another one of these from Anni Downs that I started ? deciding to do it all in blue - it shall be my blue quilt when it is finished...


  1. I think you should "love her"...
