I've been playing around with the idea of using a variety of shirtings for the backgrounds and/or setting blocks.
Its all in the mulling stage while I continue to piece more stars
Above are the two latest I did over the weekend.
Meanwhile, my oranges are ripening, and it just so happens the Clementines are in at the farmers market, so...
By the way, a Clementine is a type of tangerine, which gives a unique flavor to the marmalade - almost like eating those jelly orange wedges. Quite yummy. This batch ended up with an ever-so-slight bitter note at the end (I suspect the barely ripe lemon) which lends it a unique complexity - kinda like hops give to a good IPA Ha ha - nice try, I know! At any rate, once it hit the buttered toast it was perfect so I'll call this a success!
ps don't forget the PVQA Quilt Show this weekend! (see previous post)
