Quilt for the husband - I might have come up with the design! More on that soon.
But onto the HST love. Having finished 216 by yesterday, I prepared these for today before going to bed.
And got sewing in the morning.
Feast yourself on 288 HSTs in 96 different colour combinations.
They look rather intimidating like that. Maybe less so from this direction?
Sorry, I got carried away... Time to speak about my layout woes.
I need to work on my bed as it's the only place providing enough space and my back doesn't want me crawling on the floor. Husband won't be happy if the bed is still diverted from its intended use when he gets home. I started with dark colours in the top left corner and light ones in the bottom right corner, but decided against doing a whole layout only to rearrange it. Lazy? Sensible? I don't know.
I'm stuck with a couple of variants. Do I go for a completely "patternless" look? And if so, do I start with dark on one end fading into light on the other? (I think this will take half a day to arrange pleasingly?) Or just mix it all up?
Or do I make something more regular, like these mixed up squares?
Or mixed up?
Decisions, decisions. And certainly no easy ones. I think there's one or two options I'm drawn to more, but I'd love to hear your opinions.
Over the past days it's been suggested to me twice that my quilt might qualify for the Pantone 2013 Emerald Quilt Challenge. I'm still unsure about it and I've never yet entered anything anywhere... Anybody else taking part? I'd certainly only manage the quilt top category - and only if I overcome my layout woes first.
