I think the top is finished. The working title is Quilt Provencal. The very dark piece on the right is not as noticeable in real life, but I may have to change it out. I learned many things in making this top.
1. Triangle spike borders are not as difficult as I thought they would be. Of course, I took the easy way out in the corners because I wanted to use more of that fabric, and I only had enough to do the corners.
2. Allowing the process to be the most important thing helped me to focus on what I was doing at the time. That helped me to work on skills development along the way.
3. I shouldn't be afraid to play with colors in all their varieties.
4. Paying attention to fabric patterns can be fun.
5. It is okay to have fun and focus on only one project at a time, sometimes.
6. It is good to challenge myself to continue to learn and grow, and jump outside my box.
I am very happy I took up this self-imposed color challenge. I will continue to look for more.
This is Primitiva by Jane Dixon for Andover. I fell in love with it when I first saw it at Intrepid Thread. I started saving my pennies, then Julie put it on sale so I was able to get a fat quarter bundle of the entire collection. I saw a quilt I thought would work great with this collection over at Michelle's. I thought I would use the Primitiva for the scrappy blocks and an orange that Julie found for me as the snowball centers. This one is going to be for Tom, and he approves of my color choice. He needs another bright lap quilt to keep the beauty his sister made him company. I don't think one can ever have too many quilts. I plan on getting this one started after I finish up some small projects I need to do because they have deadlines.
I look forward to a weekend in the studio playing and enjoying the process.
Joyful quilting, everyone.
