Linking up to TNT Thursday at Happy Quilting!
You know how sometimes, although a design might be OK, its just not striking you? And, although the purpose of this particular quilt isn't to do some earth-shattering new design, it still has to feel "right" to me before I start sewing these pieces together. This has been a new type of process for me with the charm pack. This is the first pre-cut pack I have ever used. EVER! I added a few additional fabrics in the same colors to extend the number of HSTs I would have to work with. My only plan was to create all of these HSTs and then see where it took me. In the past, while I have never followed anyone else's pattern, I have ALWAYS planned out the design on paper/computer before I start cutting into any fabric, and I'm not usually a scrappy type quilter either. Its a good thing to be outside my comfort zone for a minute! I woke up this morning with a clearer picture of what I wanted - Less predictability with the color, but still a definite organizational component.
This one has that "feel good" aspect to it for me. I still might do a bit of shifting around with some of the pieces with respect to values or hues but I'm much happier with this now! Yeah!
