I went wild and cut 5" squares
and got these lovelies!!
'My Whirly Girls' - base fabric: Kaffe Fassett Mint Spot - oh so delicate and love-er-ly -
just the right amount of something in the back
- feature fabric: Jennifer Paginelli's ranges of Dance with Me, Pretty Please and BellBottoms
I am so attracted to these prints and colours;
strong sky blues; intense raspberry and eye-hurting flashes of gold; deep deep pinks with a touch of icypole orange
- the photos are sorta washed out - the hues and tones are more.....intense, striking, in a gentle girly kinda way....clear?
Finally - my first finished swap quilt - hubbie almost falling off his 'perch' in amazement???
I enjoyed more arty-farty fotos - if only I had a big red barn, or some snow covered landscape....none of that round here - just some sticky sticks and some blue sky
It is strange how I was never truly in love with this quilt - I would often say to myself that my feature fabric is just not me, not really - it's just too...floral? country? hmphf?
Hand to heart - it is me - through and through - I keep picking it to snuggle under on the couch - I could pick lots of others - but it's coming with me folks!
Don't listen to what your head says - if your hand lays on a fabric and won't let go - don't!!
I have always called this my Chaletgirl's Block Swap Quilt - well, I've literally just decided -
new name: Hand on My Heart
Does anyone else call their projects silly names which only they will get?
