These are the fabrics I'm, officially, ready to put into a quilt for US. Now that I've been making a few for other people, I want one for my bed. Turns out choosing my own fabric is a lot harder than doing it for someone else. SO here's what I have, and I'm pretty happy with it. I feel like it's very "Lizzie". Don't worry, Tom's say in this quilt comes into play in the pattern. I'm going to attempt to make the center circle look like the Imperial symbol. Attempt.
From the top left:
Acorn Chain in Pond from Modern Meadow by Joel Dewberry
Sway in Brown from Pop Garden by Heather Bailey
Flutter Bunch in Sunflower from Pick a Bunch by Nancy Mims
Dogwood Bloom in Harvest from Modern Meadow by Joel Dewberry
Honey Meadow in Cocoa from Honeybee by Michael Miller
Flower Fields in Timber from Pick a Bunch by Nancy Mims
Kona organic Hazelnut
and Queen Anne's Lace in Olive from Pick a Bunch by Nancy Mims
What do you think? I need your opinion. My "One" fabric was the Flower Fields. Then I fell in love with the Queen Anne's Lace. I added the hazelnut and snow for sashing, borders, but mostly to provide depth to the color range (I forget the word for that, intensity?). There are a few small, clustered prints, but there are a couple larger prints as well.
Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
