Sophie’s Sunrises

SophieSunrise5Here’s the latest of my sunrise blocks–I hand-pieced while watching a little television Sunday and Monday evening.

The photo suffers a little from poor light; I woke up very early this morning and even after enjoying my morning latté on the roof deck while the sun was rising and the cats played around on the roof, there wasn’t yet enough good natural light for a photo in the studio.  The background is a white-on-white fabric.

I realized last night that one of the reasons that hand-piecing is so much more relaxing than using the machine is that you don’t need to press the seams as you sew them, so there’s no up-and-down between the ironing board and the sewing machine.   (Also, you can sit in a comfortable chair and put your feet up 😉

Sophie-4SunriseBlocksThis block makes five blocks for me.  You’ve already seen the others, but here they are again.  I may change my mind because this combination of colors is growing on me ALOT, but I’m donating my chances in the drawing.

Like I said on my Sophie Junction blog this morning, playing around with the placement of color/fabric in the lotto blocks has left me really undecided about what I want to do for my sampler blocks. I’ve also completely changed my mind (more than once) about the fabrics I originally planned to use.

  1. Isn’t fun to see the blocks take on a new personality with each change in color? I am enjoying the process!
