"Afternoon Delight" was one of Sue Garman's favorite patterns. This wonderfully scrappy quilt is truly a delight to make with its combination of simple appliqué and Double Nine-Patch blocks and modified Shoo Fly blocks. Each month you will work on pieced and appliquéd blocks, and in the final month, you will assemble the blocks and add the outer border. The finished quilt measures approximately 86 1/2" inches square.
Let's use this Topic "Afernoon Delight Show and Tell" as a place to show off your beautiful blocks. That way, you know where to come to see what everyone is doing.
The topics that apply to each month are a good place to ask questions or make suggestions for each block.
AND when you post your photos to Social Media, like Instagram, Facebook, etc., use either of these hash tags so everyone there will be able to find our wonderful work:
Jill, I too love your brown colored quilt blocks. If you are struggling you might google brown batiks to see the many batiks that read brown to eye, but
have small areas of other colors that could add some interest. Or maybe expand the brown into some brown/beige, brown/golden, brown/rust tone fabrics.
You could just go to some of the many manufactures and search by the color to see what other ideas you could come up with that look good with what you
are doing. Contrast is important too. Using light med. and dark. You have done a great job at that, the only ones that I would add a little lighter segments in
would be the twirly ball and the one next to it. They don't seem to have as much contrast as the others, but it could just be my computer screen. I hope
you stick with your color palette. Your blocks are beautiful.You can always make a few bright colored ones to use in a side project like a tote, table runner etc. HelenW
