I am still plugging away a bit at a time on my wonky nine patches. As you recall, I had one leftover square or fabric from the cutting I did for the brief tutorial.
I have now added another square of fabric to it. I also cut two more sets and have sewn them all into Wonky Nine Patch squares.
Here, let me show you. I put the photo in my editor and desaturated the colors for a value test.
So what will I do? Honestly since the color contrast is good, I will just go ahead and the orange/turquoise set and know that I didn't make the best choice there. In the grand scheme of thing, it will be just fine.
Another thing you may have noticed (yes I am talking to you, Ms Quilt Police!) -the points don't all match up. For a wonky block, that doesn't bother me at all! I like the fact that it looks like pieces floating. I need at least 30 of these blocks to make a quilt the size I want - that is adding sashings. So I will most likely be showing a few more of these. I need to pull out some more fabric and make some good contrasting pairs.
I am seriously wondering just how I will quilt this. Ha ha. I suppose I should put the cart back behind the horse and get it made first.
Speaking of horses, I have been playing with coloring changes in my embroidery software. I discovered that I can add stops and change the color in the one color designs. So, I took the horse design and colored it like a true "Horse of a Different Color."
This is a photo from the design file. I will likely play with colors when I sew it out. I think I need to do a series of horses. What will I do with them though?
Comments are welcomed. I will reply when possible unless otherwise stated.
