Designed in EQ5, now saved in EQ7 with no changes. Still like it!
I like the way the original block has become both quilting and applique designs which can be used together,
(Needs some special quilting though.)
Looks a bit dull, but would be stylish in the right room … and the quilting is what counts in this design anyway.
I would add some more quilting to a real quilt … but it wouldn’t be in white … I would use a thread to match the fabric to do some boring fill in quilting, probably made up of straight lines.
I would possibly also add some white applique!
I drew up some blocks, starting with one and then making variations on that one, then started playing to see what other changes I should try.
Decided that what I needed most was some quilting designs for those open spaces.
Much better … but scope for improvement.
I like this series … I can almost believe there are leaves falling from trees any time of year.
Most of the native trees in Australia are not deciduous, but the European trees here are just about fully covered with leaves to give us shade during summer, then change colour in a few months time.
Only in fairy tales and a quilter’s home would it be comfortable sleeping under logs and leaves though.
At the moment the man of the house is on holidays, and we are not having a real holiday, but will be visiting, helping, celebrating, and clocking up some miles to do so. Virtual quilts are scheduled and will arrive as planned … at least something about this period is planned … most of the rest of it will follow some very vague plans.
One of the steps in designing what became a real quilt.
The title happened because I didn’t know what those pretty bulb like things were called, and by the time I found out the idea of a sophisticated onion originating in the fashion capital of the world had stuck.
Wonder what else can be used to create the lines of the Double Wedding Ring.
I have used flowers and beads, and I think I played a bit with bubbles or small circles too.Maybe stars … or is that taking the “what if … ” question too far?
