I’m in love with these squares.
This cloth is moving along much faster than I expected. Because I can’t get enough of the colors and fabrics and threads I’m using. And I really want to get it pieced before all the leaves fall off the maple outside of the orchard. The leaf color and the caramel-colored velveteen seem like such a match made in autumn heaven.
Just now I decided on two-inch borders and cut the nine squares of silk velvet needed. Pinned them roughly into place. Tomorrow I’ll start stitching them.
