Another Robin: Kate
At the start of this project, I was toying with the idea of doing two robins in parallel but was so busy the idea kinda never went anywhere. However, this afternoon, after I finished off something else I was working on, I had a little more sewing time and decided to go ahead and start a second robin. I wanted to do something very different from the black and batik one, so I chose to work with my Japanese taupe fabrics. I started with a 6" variable star, and went on to:
a large rose, unpieced, for the second round, followed by:
A piano key type piece, separated from the other blocks by a one inch strip for the third round. For the current, fourth round, I decided to do another unpieced piece, again a larger rose, this time with a green background:
It's a lot straighter than it looks in this photo!
