Well, I love to do many things, but playing with colors, shapes (and eventually fabric), while designing a new pattern is definitely one on the top of the list! Computer is full of ideas, virtual quilts, designs…and some, sometime see the light of the day too!
So, how does that happen? Never really thought about it directly…until today. I took a look into one of my EQ (Electric Quilt, my favorite quilting software) files and the order of how things progressed…So here it is:
1. Started with a doodle on paper, I think while on a bus ride home from work…
OK – now we are on to something! As soon as I saw flower, it needed to be finished at the edges of the quilt too – OK, add small border with some Flying Geese units, to finish the flowers at the edges:
Doesn’t this looks even better?
OK, lets see how some other sizes or colors can look like:
Dark colors look good! Maybe some Black-eye Susans:
Different size? Wall hanging:
Here is a queen size quilt, with all flowers made from same color:
OK, now – these are all virtual quilts, you say. How does a real one look like? In other words – time to test this pattern and design. So far, wall hanging size is done – it really is easy to make and I do like it! YAY!
So, what do you think? Me – on to play some more…stay tuned!
