Di Ford Mystery Part 3

I have finally finished part 3 of Quiltmania Magazine's Di Ford designed mystery. Though I started this project with great gusto back in Feb., this part really stalled me. Not really sure why but I think it has something to do with the colors I selected for the project. They just seem a little muddy to me and as a result I don't love the project as much as I did when I started. I was trying to recreate the look that is in so many of Di's quilts which is a bit darker than I usually work and I am finding it is just not me or perhaps it is just the time of year as I do prefer working in brights during the summer months. But I will keep working on this one as I do like it overall and will try to add a little lightness in the next round. Who knows once winter arrives I may think it is perfect.

Now I need to start pulling fabrics for the next part!

It showed up the 2nd time I tried. I had to go to Blogger Help last week to get rid of what they call 'plishing' and it was fixed the next day. Try them if you are having troubles.

It is gorgeous. Maybe if you use a lighter background on the next part you will fall in love again. Love the fabric you used for the broderie perse! What is the name of it?
