Sorry guys that this post is so overdue, I know many of you are curious as to where exactly we are at?
This round I was working on is for Jo's quilt which began with this centre
Boy has it evolved since that one lone arrow!!!
Sorry for the badly cropped photo below but I alway forget to take a photo before I start working on it.....I won't with Sharon's....I promise!
Border 1 is by Serena which were the extra arrows. Then Border 2 is by Carla which added the very clever bullseye and Border 3 is by Jane who expanded the bullseye theme with the octagon blocks top and bottom.
The colours in this quilt are really much more saturated than what is showing here so I definitely knew it was gonna be an AMH kinda day, with a bit of Tula and C&S thrown in to make it fun
My first idea was AMH feathers that you see all over blogland and I love but unless I reduced the size I felt that they were going to take over the quilt instead of adding to it...that was making my brain hurt LOL
So I went with the partial arrow repitition instead...just the quills.It wasn't technically too difficult but since I improv'd the design and worked out the size last it took a bit of faffing around...typical me really
I did a poll on IG for the orientation and the vertical way was the winner
I was soooo tempted to throw the whole quilt orientation on it's ear and do something down each side as well ......
But I stuck to the top and bottom look so Alice didn't freak out too much....LOL
Here's a few more close ups that show the colour depth a little better
I can't wait to see what becomes of this quilt
All of these quilts I would more than happily keep for myself
