I decided on a palette of Purples, Green and Yellow with some Ivory for background, again not my usual colour choices but I wanted to challenge myself 😀
I made the first few blocks...
I then decided that I really didn't like the Spring Green and was having difficulty in visualising the finished quilt. It went in time out for several weeks.
I then discovered that Rachel from Stitched in Color is hosting a QAL for another of Jen's patterns 'Gypsy Wife' you can find all the details here:
I have the pattern book and decided that this would be a much better fit for my scheme. The quilt looks quite busy from Jen's example
But looking at the line drawing, I can see that it will work for me, I plan to make all the blocks in shades and tones of purples with a little yellow for accent, and the background stripes very pale with maybe a little green.
This is my rough plan, the green is actually low volume with with a small amount of green and I will mix in different creams, whites etc to make the background very subtle.
I have made the first few blocks, I won't keep pace with the QAL but I don't mind I am happy I have a plan for these fabrics.
I have an idea for the appliqué blocks I have already made and I still have all the templates and pattern for Golden Days, I just need to think how I will make it, I think maybe I have a two colour quilt in me blue/white or Red/Cream, it needs some thought!
