Planning DSQ10 quilt
I've been stalking my partner on the Internet looking for ideas. She has been very quiet, which makes my job a tad difficult, but I think I'm finally getting a feel for her. (Thank you dear for posting some new pictures and an inspiration mosaic.)
My thought is to create a mini version of this quilt from the recent issue of Quilt magazine. I don't think you can see it in the photo - these drunkard path blocks are raw edge appliqued. The curved edges are frayed and fuzzy. The straight edges are sewn into the seams.
I want to make it using a charm pack - maybe one of the ones on the left - and a solid background - not white. Although, really white might look best with Fresh Flowers if I go that way. Strawberry Fields and Sunkissed might be stunning with aqua or ash grey.
I need to make a decision soon, order the fabric and get sewing. I'd love some input...what do you think?
