Got some things done, got some things planned. So, of course, it was time to start a completely unforeseen project. Well, you know how it goes on the internet…one thing leads to another. Here is how I got to this point.
Well, I was over at Flickr checking out people and their pretty pictures. I saw this picture of Lizzy House’s Marble Champ quilt. Nice, huh?! So I wandered over to her blog post about Marble Champ–which uses her fun new Red Letter Day fabric collection. And it was off to the Andover Fabric web site to have a look around. Oh, yes, gotta take a look at the free patterns. What’s this little beauty? A free pattern from Lonni Rossi called Heaven & Earth (using her gorgeous Blue Moon fabrics). OOooh, aaaah. Very striking.
So, I printed it off, gathered some batiks, cut some triangles:
And found myself pulling out the bendy “design board”:
I’m not sure I’m loving the lack of subtlety in the greens…as if acid green can be subtle. Snort! I think the green prints are fighting with the variety of the blues and I want the greens to be more background-y. We shall see…I may change these out and stick with just two or three of the lighter greens. Oh well, fun for now and it struck me as a nice, crisp summer-y quilt.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. Off to ponder those greens some more.
