This is as good as a photo gets in your dark bedroom. Roan’s snoozing in my bed, and there’s no way in Hell I’m going to chance waking him. I think crappy photos of quilts from a distance are actually quite good in helping “see” the design anyway.
Below is my usual design, and though I like it, I’ve just done it too many times.
I probably will crash on the couch to watch cartoons with the little guy when he gets up. You can get a lot done when you for no reason what-so-ever are wide awake at 3am.
I’ve read The Stranger and filled out my city voting ballot. Ordered this delightful home decor owl fabric with Christmas presents in mind, and now that I am fully caffeinated I thought I would set us to work on the design of our Value Quilts.
That’s all we’re doing this week, because I need a break to catch-up on my quilting bees. This might provide some time for some of you to catch-up too. Head over to the Value Quilt Flickr Group, test out some designs, see what resonates.
I am curious what you think of the top design? I can’t fit all the blocks, so I’ll have to add as I go. There are a few blocks that don’t have enough contrast of light and dark, but I think I’m going for it anyway. I did place a few of the squares to make the diamonds all one color. Looking at the photo makes me see some other areas where I’ll do some more of this.
Off to look at House Blocks, not my favorite, I always feel so inadequate when I produce them.
Have a great weekend.
