I spend a lot of time in this blog trying to convince you to try designing a quilt or two. I guess if I want you to try something new, it behooves me to try something new once in a while too.
It is about 7" x 8" and I want to use it as the center of a small wall hanging. I've never designed around a picture before.
This would make an excellent frame if all I wanted was a 10"x10" wall hanging. But I want to make something larger; so I need to try something else.
I like this better.
How should I quilt it?
I'm not keen on this. Especially since my free motion machine quilting skills are no better than my free-hand computer drawing skills.
I like this better; I think I might be able to do it.
I now need to design simple blocks to go around this.
They are too big; they dwarf the central image.
This is better. It's more in scale.
I like the way this looks. I'm close to wanting to make this.
But I'm not sure if the new blocks may not be too simple and I'm not sure how I want to quilt them. So I'm going to leave this design for now and come back to it later.
