I can't wait to see what the other hundreds of participants have come up with for their future keepsake heirloom masterpieces!
The original was to be apple green, turquoise, grey(accent/constant) and purples on a white w/black background. I flipped a coin and decided on Red for my background. Kept the Greens and Purples and sub-ed in Yellow for the blues. I chose my 'accent' color by pulling a chunk of black w/pink roses off the shelf. It was the first piece that had enough yardage.
I wish I could say I put a lot of thought into this top but truth is, it is what it is. If the instructions called for X amount of sqs and I could get it out of one fabric, I did. All my center purple sqs are the same, for example. I rather like that my outer green triangles are all the same. I will pick my fabrics for the final outer border by what will work from the pieces I have left over. Leaning towards 2 inches of red and 6 1/2 of a yellow print not in the top.
My regret is that I didn't stay caught up each week so I had a lot of sewing to do. I did however have everything cut out and dealt into sets to work on if/when I get a good snow day.
My 'back' is finished, the link to that post is HERE
Do you think this would be a good applique? I am leaning towards 2013 Easy Street (like it is an address)
The dark green side will say: "Where we sleep till Noon"
now don't hold your breath while I get that part done- lol
