Well folks my well tuned seasonal intuition has kicked in.
Yesterday I noted a distinct difference in the air.
I'm not sure how it works, I just feel Autumn is on the way.
Which is true of course...but with the garden still in bloom,
it seems a little off!
Strange then how my latest wip has already predicted the end of summer!
Funny how freakishly hot it was in spring
when I was sewing the 'summer of love'...
Maybe I should get out some sunnier fabrics!
I am unsure of this project.
I'm just not used to two tone patchwork.
I purposefully left the mini squares blank,
to fill in later when I decide how the quilt is working.
At the moment I am thinking dark grey for a border,
(paper pieced of course),
because I want the circles to really pop.
Finishing off with white binding with rounded corners.
Though this could change depending on the weather!!
Intrigued I am to see how this works out - you could go with any colour of course but I like the way you are thinking
I love this effect and can't wait to see the finished project. I imagine a little hit of a colour or two in those tiny squares... or all white. You'll know what's best when you get there. x
I love the colours of your new patchwork but if your sewing influences the seasons perhaps you could get some yellow fabric on the go for a while! ;)
It looks lovely - really different!
Who needs a weatherman! Can't wait to see how it turns out. xxxx
I really love this Clare :) To me it is so calm...I can imagine when you finish....some very lovely hand stitching to quilt it :)
Its very nice your quilt !! I have been cleaning out my stash and getting rid of fabric I hate and will not use. Also setting aside all the projects that need finishing and all the new fabric. I think the paper piecing a quilt pushed me into organizing what I have so that I can finish some things and free up time for the hand sewing, oh what fun I have to look forward to Fall and winter settling into a coziness..
It like it ... its very soothing and calming. It looks almost Wintery, rather than Autumny.
I'm curious to see what you do with this. I know it will be fabulous and so, so different than what I'd do!
Spooky....check out my post from Wednesday - www.bluepatchquilter.blogspot.com
