"She's Doing it Again!...

... I mean...
 Satu is tinkering again... this time with tiny fabric pieces!
I really wonder what she is now doing?

Just in case...
I HAVE to take care of that she does not  loose any of them."

Don't worry, Fenix! 
I got A splendid IDEA!
I'm going to make more windmill blocks for the outer border of Dulcinea
...at least 16! 
And I will make them in smaller size, 3" x 3"... and I'm going to use this Riley Blake's Mint Grunge fabric as a background instead of cream...

... Yes! That looks nice;o)
...
La-la-laa... the sewing of these windmill blocks is more than fantastic!
I hardly can't wait to see them in their place...
...

 Damn! I don't like what I'm seeing here!

What shall I do now?
I have 16 small windmill blocks... 
hmm... at least I have now stuff ready for a mini-Dulcinea...

 ... and not enough Celebrate Spring! charms for the pieced outer border!

OMG! Satu, I feel faint!

 Can't you remember that Carrie wrote in her pattern the outer border can be optional!

Yes, I remember, but I WANT the outer border... and preferably pieced one!
Think, Satu, think!!!

Well, here's the result of my thinking!
Only four windmill blocks, one in each corner and strip-pieced border. The strips are 1 1/2" x 3 ".

 Ok, this will be good enough! 

What do you think, Fenix? 
Shall we post this version of Dulcinea to our patchwork friends, Sinta Renee and Sherri for their Vintage Schnibbles parade?

Purr.... maybe this is good purr-enough!!!

And maybe we should mention the size is about 36" x 36"... little bit larger than Carrie's original. Carrie's windmills are 6" x 6" finished, mine are 7" x 7".
Now I'm searching for a nice backing fabric... I wish I could find one with ladybugs...

WE Wish YOU a FANtastic Summer WEek!!!
