In the last post I showed you the block I had made using Judith's fabrics when mine had not arrived. I did start eventually with my fabrics and I believe I made the first two blocks and sewed them together plus started embellishing them in the rest of the class. I continued when I went home to make 2 more panels. The second one was made as one large one because I wanted to put a fan in the middle and the third one was again 2 squares sewn together. They are roughly 12 x 24 each panel. So will end up as a 24 wide by 36 wallhanging plus borders.

I am at a point where I am trying to figure out what kind of border or borders, what color, should they be plain because the panels are so embellished? I bought some pink taffeta and have laid it over that but don't know if I like it and also where will this hang. I will show pics of the first panel today. I also added a couple of closeups of 2 areas. I see the colors are not very good. I did them outside but at the end of the day. Maybe inside with the flash might be better. May try that with the rest of them tomorrow.

Lovely!! Something you have mastered (and I can't seem to get right) is having elements drift away from the seams. I think it's my perfectionism that insists I need to keep on the seams. You've done a great job!
