So far, I’ve enjoyed the center design of all of the squares in this row. I am not fond of the light rust in the center of this one though. It looks too salmon. I tried to substitute a light rust colored floss, but I couldn’t get the threads to stay together well enough. It needed a perle cotton or Pebbly Perle, etc. It’s the only place in the entire design where this one thread is used. I guess it will have to do since I can’t find another thread in my stash that would be better.
And you finally get to see the overdyed thread – Acorn Woods by Thread Gatherer. I like the outer borders of this square. So I now have the first row of squares completed and did the sashing between them as well. I think I’ll tackle the outer borders and corners next. Don’t forget to check out Liz’s progress today as well on her blog.
