I had also reached the point where I had to decide where I was going. The original intention had been to float these on a white kona background, calm and restful. It was getting rather on the large size for that, and it would involve a lot of white hexies. I still have rather a lot of Liberty fabric I have yet to hexie. The end of result would be too big.
I thought about it over the last few days, and have decided to change direction. I think I like them all butting up against each other. But how to go about this?
Darker fading into light?
Just all together in a mix up?
I am going with the pic 'n' mix. The top pic 'n' mix photo.
To be honest, after crawling around the floor, the photos all look much of a muchness.
This quilt is for me to snuggle up (vegetate) in front of the tv. If it is too structured I will be forever torturing myself with "I should have done this", "I should have done that". Random placement will be less stress inducing ~ I think. My husband also kindly pointed out that I have a reputation for spilling my drink, whether it be red wine, whiskey or simply coffee. As I sit here typing with some curry down my t shirt, I have to agree with that a plain white background might not be such a good idea.
It will be a lot smaller without the plain white in-betweens. This way I can start to piece it together now then add to it as I go along. If it was too structured I couldn't do that.
I still have a fair wee stash of Liberty fabrics not used yet, all neatly folded (?) as you can see.
I like the pink and purple one just peeking out.
I have a fair wee stash of Liberty fabrics overall. So far I have only repeated one block, and that was by mistake.
All that fabric though and I have run out of this red and white. I like this but it will have to be a corner.
I have enough of this cycle fabric that I should do something sensible.
I have a whole half metre of this gorgeous animal tana lawn. My daughter in law gave this at Christmas a while back, I have been hoarding it. Wouldn't it make a lovely little shirt for wee boy?
And this ship fabric? Not too pink toned?
Not everybody "gets" Liberty, but those who do really, and I mean, really, love it.
