Red Bliss polka dots

Well, I did decide to use the red Bliss polka dots.....  notice the very slight change in the pattern directions I have made?

another option - Metro Rings

I found this chunk of a red print from either Bliss or Ruby (I think Bliss?) that goes with the April Showers prints.  So, the blue from the last post, or this print?  Decisions decisions!!!  At least I know this print wouldn't match up with any of the April Showers prints - and I could still use the blue print as a binding......

Metro rings decisions

Trying to decide on the cornerstone color for the metro rings quilt.  I ordered the solid (I think this is Betty Teal?) that is supposed to coordinate.  It goes OK, but not perfect.  I ordered the ''mint'' that was suggested, and I am SO not in love with that color for these, so I didn't even bother to take a pic of it - I just stuck it away with my 30's prints.

Also trying to decide if I want to use one print/color or two.  I am leaning toward one print because I like the square instead of triangles....

Hmm, so far, I think that the blue polka dot might be my favorite.  The only problem being - there is some arcs that have that print in the end (see upper right in the pic below)

Decisions, decisions!

Rookie mistakes

I made the biggest rookie sewing mistake on Monday working on the awning for my vintage camper trailer....  sewed wrong sides together on a seam (that wasn't a french seam).

Then, I did it again today!  Same exact mistake!

I am determined to get this awning for my vintage camper trailer done though!
