Well these are a few of the options Cyndy and I came up with for her quilt. Keep in mind that this in only half her quilt but you can see how 4 of these will create a very stunning quilt that as I said to Cyndy, 'I was prepared to change my bedroom curtains for it' if she didn't like it once it was finished!!!
The photos don't quite do the quilt justice - it's a very deep and sultry collection of fabrics in burgandies, soft lettuce green and dusky pinksThe above layout, kept the dark squares of the four patches crossing diagonally with the dark burgandy Angle units forming a loop-de-loop with little pointy ears - don't you love my ability to descirbe so creatively what's in my head - be worried, very worried!!!! The above version still has the loop-de-loop but I turned the units alongside the diagonal 4 patches. This version is the same as the first example but with the 4 patches all turned so that the green forms the diagonal. This brings a star into the centre of each quarter and also there will be a star in the centre of the quilt plus on the compass points into the border which she has decided to piece with rectangles filling in the gaps like on Prizmatic has with the half square triangles. This has been a fantastic big step back into Angling and quite honestly, I couldn't wait for her to come over and take it off my design wall so that I could start with a quilt myself. Well, I'm off for some beauty sleep as it's past midnight. Goodnight cyber-world - sweet dreams
