Muddy Creek Applique Blocks

My 4 1/2" applique blocks are all finished up for the next border of my Muddy Creek quilt! I stuck them up on the wall around the centerpiece and just started smiling. Oh yeah. I can totally see this happening.

Course I have to give them a little bit more space to breathe. Don't you think? It just looks to me like a bit of light colored fabric would do the trick. I'm fiddling around with a possible coping border and maybe some thin little strips of spacer fabric?
Checking out a layout plan...
Got a lot going on right now though, so I'm not sure when I'll find the proper time to proceed. So much book work sitting on my desk that I've finally succumbed to guilt and angst and well, something that smells a bit like depression. Hopefully I can burn through the necessary demands and get back to what I love best very quickly. If not, I'm sure I'll find ways to sneak in some quilting anyway.*wink  There is still 24 hours in each day?

  8. The blocks look great! Pink and brown is one of my favorite combos. And to put a positive spin on the low mood, I heard about a study that showed a mild depression may actually be good for you and help you live longer! Hope it's true. I have my bouts of low mood on occasion also!

  11. This is looking great! I think that you have appliqued the brown parts onto the pink parts? And looking at it I probably would have appliqued the quarter circles onto the brown background - interesting how we think differently, huh? Can't wait to see what's next! Hope you find enough time to work on it and keep yourself sane......

  15. Your blocks around the outside make me smile, too, Audrey. I love how they connect and make arches around the next inside border. Very fun!

  20. Excellent choice of a block design for your quilt. They remind me of a quilt pattern I was looking at a couple days ago. By Kim Diehl.
