I sewed the big wheel blocks together this morning. It sat on the bed most of the day. I’m this close to cutting it apart and making the blocks smaller. That’s a lot of background. But then again, I may leave them as they are and put a small inner border and a little more background just on the sides. Or… I might just round the corners after it’s quilted and put on a nice blue binding of some sort. Hmm…
While that debate raged on, I started a little something from this wonderful book:
Honestly, this is a great book. The quilt designs let the fabrics sing. I’m reading every word because I don’t want to miss a detail. The text about Jane’s inspirations left me dreaming of colors and shapes and quilts. I also decided I need to get out more so I can have more inspiration. In the meantime, I saw some colorful English beach huts while watching Pirate Radio today. Does that count?
Anyway, I’m starting with Charming Chintz. I changed the 16-patches to nine-patches. Jane’s arrangement also matches one small print with one large print throughout the quilt. I’m messing around with the small prints. We’ll see. There may be a debate about that later too.
