En Provence #2

I finished the quantity needed for Clue 1 and moved on to cutting for Clue 3. Since they are the same block... just different colors... I thought it prudent to continue doing the same thing rather than trying the new Clue 2 block.

Wednesday was my sewing group meeting and lunch... and I was able to complete all of them before we went off to Red Lobster to celebrate the holidays.

After lunch I went home, got laundry started and began cutting the magenta triangles while eyeing my neutrals.  I wasn't so sure about using them... especially the cream colors... which have a yellow undertone color.  So I went stash diving again and came up with a white with purple print.  I made up  a couple blocks and though I worry about there being too much purple in it for a neutral print... I love the block.

The table and the triangle are actually white, not yellow-ish.  This picture does not show the proper coloring and, though I tried to edit it, I could't get the correct color to show.  The magenta is much brighter also.   I'll try for a better picture if it is sunny out tomorrow.

I'm having to fiddle a bit with that left side triangle.. it seems to want to come up short.   Cutting that little notch in the magenta triangle helps with alignment, but I still need practice to "eye" it better.   I've made 10 blocks so far and with each one I'm getting more accurate.  I have several yards of both fabrics so I have room to play and be picky with accuracy.

The grands showed up for a pizza dinner, and the oldest is staying with us for most of the Christmas break... so I will be trying to fit in more sewing when he goes to bed and in-between holiday activities.
