The night I picked out these colors, for a quilt for my husband's and my bed, I couldn't sleep. I was excited, because these colors make me so happy!!!!!!!!
Here they are all cut up, in all kinds of rectangles of different widths and lengths. I will arrange the rectangles in bars.
This is what my husband saw, in the living room, when he got home from a trip yesterday. Poor man. He is so patient.
The fabric with the purple birds and deep yellow background is the main fabric. I've never done a quilt in these kinds of colors, and I'm not sure what I'm doing, but I couldn't resist them. I want our room to look like springtime and sunshine!
I think I need to go back to what I started with. I was trying to combine colors yesterday, and something wasn't working. I thought it might be that I needed a lot of white, and I cut up a sheet which was getting worn out, but that doesn't seem to be it.
Today I am going to go back to look at the first picture in this post, and simplify my color choices. I think when I added fabrics from my stash, the quilt started going in several different directions.
I think I need to go back to this center fabric, hanging on the back of a dining room chair, and not use the fabrics which "almost" work. I've always thought that a few mavericks keep things exciting....but maybe it's too much this time....Especially since these colors are an all new experience for me.
