First was the little cherry wreath – pure delight. (Sue garman’s Lilly Rosenberry quilt is next on my to do list, once Maltaville is finished, so this is good practice). Then the wreath – instead of bluish green and brown, I chose a really dark green to go with the pink, and think it’s OK. For the large floral shape I really went to town – a rather large blue obmre print by Mimi Dietrich, with an amazing Turkey red that needs a large shape to really shine. I love the combined effect of both. Last came the blue wreath shape – here I used one of the really old Smithsonian fabrics (either Rising Sun or Groom’s Quilt, I’m too lazy to leave the computer and check the selvedge) with the buds done in fussy-cut flowers from one of the Dutch Chintzes. Although at first I wasn’t sure about all that blue, I like the result.
Yay, only eight more blocks to go!
