Susan: Little progress
I completely spaced posting yesterday afternoon, so I'm scheduling this at my usual time, and we'll see if it slides in where it was supposed to be or not. =) After arranging and re-arranging, taking photos and comparing, here is what the center of the Flower Fairies will look like. The blocks will be sewn together tomorrow (Monday) afternoon. The original plan was to do it on Friday, but that didn't happen, so this is the revised plan. Then I'll fill in some corners and joining spaces, and start work on the borders. Click to enlarge. Judy had commented to me that it bothered her a little that the top row flower fairies are all going in the same direction. I hadn't noticed until she said something, because I was concentrating on balancing the butterflies and whatever color balance I could get with leaving the red fairy in the middle. Now it bothers me, too. I have a possible solution. We'll see when I put them together tomorrow! Now I'm trying to decide whether to put a flower fairy in the center of each border or not. I'm leaning toward putting them there. Opinions?
