Yesterday, I mentioned that I started (yet another) new project, Chinese Lanterns.
Our guild has a secret pal program that runs 4-6 months, and you send a small gift to your pall each month. My secret pal, sent me a jelly roll (way more than the amount your supposed to spend!!) but I really appreciate it. Thank you again Ellen!
It is the Kaufman Oriental Traditions Roll-up. It comes with 6 strips of Radiance – a cotton/silk blend. I wanted to find a pattern that would set those off.]
I was thumbing through my new book:
The lantern pattern is in there – but slightly different than what I am ending up with.
I do have a question though. I am making about 28 lantern blocks (that is al that can make with the amount of accent strips that I have.
I won some fabric from the shop hop that was two weeks ago and I wonder if it will make a good border fabric – it is the red fabric. Does it look good or should I look for something else? Should I wait to see what it looks like with more blocks made? Opinions wanted please!!
