On the road again
Well, I have been home almost a week but it is time to hit the road again. This time to Florida to find DH a rental home to live in when he starts his new job next month. As usual I will be taking hand applique to work on while we are in the car or sitting around a hotel room in the evenings. Just as a change of pace I thought I would show the above quilt that I finished a few years ago. Sadly I can't remember the pattern, maybe a Bunny Hill pattern? It hangs in my sewing room and I really enjoy it. These are the colors that really speak to me, aqua, coral pink, teal, red and green. DH loves yellow, red and black and both of us also enjoy blue and white so our home is filled with color, but if it was up to me every room would be some variation of the colors above.
As you can see I have made progress on this quilt during all the recent travels. The picture from a previous post was of applique that was prepped to go, but these ones are all sewn and the rest are prepped for this trip. Another variation of my favorite colors, aqua, green and that coral pink. I wasn't sure at first about those outside setting triangles but after auditioning others and then putting some of the border on the design wall I decided that this first choice is best. I hated cutting into fabric to cut triangles to put up on the wall but this time it was worth the effort. Does anyone else have that problem, or do you just pick everything without needing to see it on a design wall? I would love to hear your thoughts.
