Hello everyone, Lynley here again in Canberra, Australia. This is the top so far - I took for my starting point #107 which is pinwheels with feathered edges and lots of a lovely plain denim blue . The denim blue is kind of there (it looks much lighter and less grey in real life than in the picture). I cut the pinwheels off centre and feathered the plain setting blocks rather than the pinwheels. Plenty of unresolved triangle borders there!!!
The large plain areas look so good in the finished amish quilts and so boring in my own half-finished tops ... I need to have more faith that the quilting will make it look good, and resist the urge to stick more lairy colours on it. Actually, I won't be able to resist the urge, and I'm thinking lots more of the pinks in the next border to wrap round or beside my words. Maybe pointy pinks, say a sawtooth border?
I really like the pink and the turquoise together, it's not something I would normally think of doing; but I dyed a lot of blues and greens and they looked deadly boring with just each other. I had done a few plain yellows but they were too washed out. But the pinks were already sitting in the shelf .... waiting.
