I'm almost done with this quilt. I sat down and did the last three blocks at the same time, and I am still amazed at how much prints can surprise me.
For example, I thought this pairing was going to work very well. I love both the prints individually.
The finished result isn't bad, but it is a little muddy. There isn't quite enough contrast to make the design of the block clear, or at least as clear as it could be.
And I thought these fabrics were going to be a weak, not quite matching pair.
But the block itself turned out quite cool, in my opinion. The dark black and off white really of the outer fabric really make the pink seem to glow a bit. They are stronger together.
And finally, I was initially sort of indifferent to the yellow fabric.
But I think it looks great against the black.
I'm excited to finish up these blocks and layout the whole thing and get a sense of what the finished quilt will look like.
And honestly, any time I take pictures of anything, I end up with a few shots of Fritz. I mean, he's there and I have a camera, so why not?
|He's thinking about jumping on these quilt blocks, I just know it.|
But I like it even more when I catch him looking sort of silly.
