Some people design quilts on computer programs or just with paper and colored pencils. I design while sewing, which means there are plenty of ripping out sections of blocks and redoing them.
This is where we left off, I had created a large star out of the light red print. I was very pleased with that, but then wasn’t happy with the upper corner, it just felt too dark.
As you can see, I replaced the solid red with a brighter print. Adds more depth and dimension.
I had one center block, I decided to make sure there was more white than red.
On the side I repeated those two blocks.
I don’t know why, but I wasn’t happy with then, bring out the seam ripper again.
Just by narrowing down the center diamonds I feel that there is more interest here. I think I have an outer border that will be mostly white. It short of feels unfinished right here.
Blowing in the wind. I won’t be quilting this until I get my new Koala table, and that could be a while…Leah
