Value-added on the wall
This mish-mash-moo quilt is specially commissioned by Mama G, for her own WIP little one 😉 She wanted a scrappy quilt and she liked what she saw at Willy-Nilly’s. Although many crafty bloggers only offer sneak peeks to their works before giving to the recipients, I believe I do need some WIP approvals as I go along for this commissioned quilt!
So, I’m done sewing up the Half-Square-Triangle blocks, cutting, ironing and squaring the blocks. It is layout time and I had so much fun! Initially, there was some trouble putting up some blocks because the contrast in values are not that great. But after putting it up on the layout wall, and taking a couple of pictures of it, I think the magic is working!
So, is this a pass or a ‘try again’? I’m rather tempted to toss out a couple of ‘non-contrasty’ blocks. But I’m trying hard to switch some around to blend things in a bit better.
GOSH Yvette! We love it! The contrast is even better than the one I first saw! I like the different mix of patterns.I only spotted 3 triangles* which should have a slightly higher contrast value. Heh heh… just my eye. I don’t know which you can switch it with. So if it has got to stay, no worries. It’s really nice as it is!
*Second row, 8th and 9th triangle & seventh row, 9th triangle (same pattern as the one in the second row) 😀 But please don’t take it out! I really like the design of it! I can see it in the closeup shot!
It is so great that you guys like it :>
I think the heavens are trying to tell me that the layout is not good enough. The layout fabric fell over the next morning and everything got messed up. So I started over again. And this time, I think it worked even better! 😀 I’m starting to piece them together and I will post again when the top is ready for borders.
GAH!! FELL OFF THE WALL??!! I hope it hasn’t been too much more work!
Oh, before my pregnant-self brain cells gets used up for the day, HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY DEAR FRIEND!!!!
I LOVE IT! I can’t wait to see the finished quilt. Such a cool idea:)
