For this last part, I wanted to work on the pieced block first, using fabrics from other blocks to get some kind of balance and also adding one reddish checked textured fabric to give the block some light. And when finished, I actually loved the block! Don't you ?
Unfortunately, put beside the other blocks, I realised that it wasn't fitting well with the rest of the quilt blocks. Look at the photo just below and you'll undestand what I mean.
So I decided to get rid of the last surrounding row and the triangle corners of the row before last and stitched these rows again with other fabrics. That's what I got....
And I think that goes right with the overall harmony of the quilt... Do you also think I was right ?
One last block to make! The background fabric I will use for it is the same as the background fabric for the cat block.
Now I am wondering.... will I leave the quilt like this or will I add a large border all around ? For now I am tempted to add a very large border... So as soon as the quilt top is finished I will go to my LQS to find the right fabric.
BTW, I hope you have enjoyed the London series posts. All the photos were taken between April 20th and April 29th 2013.
Have a nice Sunday,
