I have a new quilt top to unveil!
First, this is the "inspiration" fabric. (The one that I chose all of the other fabrics to go with.)
(Please notice the pink & light spots.)
Here is the resulting quilt top:
The inspiration is the final round & will be the binding.
Here is a close up of the inspiration in the quilt top:
Couple of things about this quilt pattern, in the book, the authors give you the amounts that you need for each round. You all knwo that you need less for the first several rounds than you do for the last rounds right? Well don't buy you fabric that way... If you buy the amount that you need for the last round, you can shuffle them around & try to get a pleasing arrangement.
Another thing, this pattern will always suprise you with how it turns out. I had no idea that that hand dyed pink was going to stand out sooooooo much. Nor did I know that the light blue next to it would look so gray or that the center would look so white in comparison... I really like th elast 3 rounds...
I also think that I could have played & played & played with the arrangement of the other for ever & still questioned the results. & For the record, I DID just that. This UFO was at least 4 years old...
Has anyone else done this quilt? Care to show & share about it on your blog?
