- Next time I do this, I will use dark and light in the twists to create the illusion of depth.
- " " " " " , I will regulate the width of the strips so there won't be any strings.
- The front does not match the lovely dark floral (below) I had planned for the back. Her DNA is just too shy. I have some peach flannel for the back.
I love this rich saturated rust color, and I have been inspired multiple times by its combination with periwinkle. I would love to show off its generous-sized print in the quilt, but as you can see, the color is too dark for the soft hues of the center part:
So I decided to create little "vignettes" of the fabric for someone to enjoy.
A row along the side would look like this, sort of Craftsman style.
That "other" project I mentioned? A new use for the bold dark floral. Not sure what I think. (More about the sources of this inspiration in the next post.)
In the meantime, I have been pondering who to give the DNA quilt to. It doesn't have anybody's name on it yet. For me, this raises issues relating to my own shy DNA. I would love for this shy girl to have a home, to be part of something meaningful. But how... ?
Perhaps sewing just gives me too much time for introspection!
