I had been hanging about on Twitter and Instagram in the weeks before Easter and a Quilt Along had been got up. I got sucked in - a combination of inspired, Easter weekend and a cupboard full of fabric.
The pictures show the medallion quilt growingv.
And stopping right as it reached the edge of my bed.
There are two more borders to grow and I have hit a roadblock.
See I'm not confident in choosing colour scheme when it comes to a scrappy many fabric quilt like this one. So armed with a desire to start right now I decided to work from what I had. Where there was pink in Sarah's I went with that, black I chose a black print. my shades are very different and consequently so is the whole look but it gave me some structure to my fabric choices.
It was working until I got to the yellow in the second to final HST/Flying Geese border. All the yellows I had a brown base. I went ahead and used it, but my slowing work rate should have warned me that I wasn't sold on the look.
I think that to continue with a yellow I need a green-y yellow but there are none of them in my stash and I can't find any in the stores either. It has been suggested that I substitute turquoise (picking up some hints of colour in earlier fabrics).
I'll need to hunt some out but the theory has promise, I think. Opinions?
