The behemoth is blue, or as described to me a shimmer of sea glass. That was fantastic, the happy couple live by the sea, and it was that sort of tone I was aiming for in my head. The piecing is coming together well, I'm just over half way through. I think. Or put it another way, from my toes to my nose which is about 54". When it reaches the top of my head it will be about 60".
The photo is not great, but my preferred photographer is off on her wanders in Europe. The resident photographer, groans, takes 1 photo and that's your lot.
There is rather a lot of blue left. Originally the quilt was to be blue ombre tones. Ms C admired the greenish blue and a quick supplementary order introduced more green tones. I think in retrospect this was a good thing, the green adds more depth and warmth overall.
So, again, serendipity came into play when Yvonne mentioned her Snowflake Shimmer quilt a long. The quilt is based on a photo her husband took of a snowflake. (her husband obviously has more of an interest in cameras than mine!). If ever a quilt a long was waiting for me it was this one.
The decision I have to make is, which blue is the best blue? I have enough turquoise but will have to order some more blue. I decided to use the blue I had the most of. And you know what? Amazingly I have almost 2 metres of each blue! Maybe I could fudge it and use both. Probably not, what I like about Yvonne's quilt are the clean crisp lines of the snowy sky.
Now see if you can spot the difference?
