Right next to the project file I discovered yesterday was another with a few quilt designs, and many details which need a makeover. Look at the inner border of circles, particularly the corners. Nice corner block, but doesn’t fit with the other blocks in the border.
Now look again!
The coffee is doing a good job this morning.
I think I will have another one … I might be able to save the world today!
Or at least try these new corners in the After Pompeii project file.
I played with the project file I used yesterday and noticed the difference in the way the fabrics looked in small blocks … 6 inch … compared to 12 inch blocks, and tried saving a block as a 6 inch picture file ….
… then a 12 inch picture file.
This might be important when saving picture files for pattern sheets, but it is also important in real quilts. The scale of the fabric print has to fit the size of the block you are making. I am quite happy with the way these fabrics work in the two sizes of the block design, but I would probably look for slightly different fabric for the smaller version.
Fabric pattern details are not as dominant in the larger block, which means the block design is what we see rather than be distracted by the fabrics in a smaller block.
