I’m participating in my first ever quilt-a-long over at Lily’s Quilts.
So the next step is to find Kona Cottons to match your color scheme and lay out a quilt all magic-like.
Just a reminder, this is my color scheme from Design-Seeds:
So I went over to this lovely website and got about the business of matching up my colors with the available Kona Cottons.
Seriously. I spent over an hour here. This one was too dark, that tone was too cool, this particular shade of cool-purple-grey doesn’t exsist. After what felt like a loooooooong time I settled on what I felt like was a pretty good match.
Next was the task of making it into some kind of quilt pattern. This was EXTREMELY difficult for me. See, I am a creature of symmetry. I love things that are neat and even and repeating and symmetrical. I’m get a bit twitchy if things aren’t like this. So imagine me, trying to create a random but appeasing pattern of solid blocks of colors. It gave me fits, but this is what I came up with.
Now seeing it on the screen, I just don’t know about it. Over at Lily’s they posted a quilt with even smaller squares that I think I like better, but we are going to marinade in this a bit and make a choice. I want to make this into a new quilt for the bedroom, so no pressure or anything.
Now to cross-post these pictures over at the Flickr group and see how everyone else is doing.
Then I have to stop Pickles the Cat from rummaging through the trash looking for the empty dime bag of catnip like a sad, sad addict.
