A New Direction
This quilt was looking far too somber. I'm making it for an event called the Love, Lauren Celebration. A celebration calls for vibrant, lively hues. Lauren's favorite colors were red and purple, so that's where I started. Now comes the fun part. Today I auditioned a lighter double four-patch. I think I like it. Here's the next batch of rose buds. There'll be 8 pink ones - polka dots are about as bright and cheery as you can get. I can't wait to sprinkle them in.
I'm rapidly outgrowing my design wall. Pictured is 7 x 7 (minus one). The finished quilt center will be 9 x 9. Haven't got a clue as to how I'll quilt it. I'd love to do FMQ, but the quilt will be queen size. That's a lot of quilt to manuever! Maybe I could do it in quadrants? Good thing I have some time to mull it over. :)
