New Direction


Nancy here.  Turns out those fans weren't as inspiring as I thought.  I really didn't enjoy making them so I have decided to go in a different direction.  I am using #25 as my inspiration now. 
I used the layout I had planned for the fans and think I got a similar look.
Now my big problem - the letters in the border.  I have no idea what I want to put there.

Oh wow- I love the movement! You have a really caught the inner sparkle of the originals. This is really inspiring work.

No good advice on the letters- I am still struggling with this. I am going to try small letters in the next border and see if they play nicer than large letters.

Very nice.....look at all the quilting space too.
How about your name or initials?
Your wedding date?
Date of making the quilt top?
A childs name and give as gift to him/her.

Lovely colors and that green inner border is just right.

Happy Sewing
