There aren’t many things that stump/scare/put me in a blur, but this is one of them:
I like to think I’m great at aqua, blue, green, red, orange, brown, yellow…or any other combination I can come up with that isn’t strictly girly. Of course I am always up to a challenge, but girly colors make me sit and think for sometimes far too long. Not to mention these are all of the pinky/purple prints I own, not much huh? At lease compared to the other various colors of the rainbow!
This is a custom quilt, a Christmas present of course and on top of that it’s for my friends madre, for him to give. Which ultimately could make or break me! Yikes, such pressure. I’m thinking a Dresden Plate Quilt, 1. Since I haven’t made one in a while and 2. Because it will keep the quilt traditional, but the prints will make it modern. I think the combination will be perfect for someone who is a little older (mother older…not OLD 😉 and doesn’t run around in the modern quilting world. Baby steps in transforming others is a must!
I’m finding these baby steps are essential in some of the guilds I am in with more traditional quilters, otherwise I give them a heart attack and they close off any possible ideals of modernism.
So off to the cutting board I go!
