What do you do when you finish a quilt?
The photo here is of a new chair in my office and the fabrics picked out for an office quilt. I need it to cover another older high back chair.
The new area rug has the greens and blues in it. The roses go with this pillow and my other chair. It will work.
The woman/owner/teacher at the store was very, very helpful. I went in with one idea and came out with something totally different.
She taught me how to match colors and to pick different "levels" of them. I'm not sure if level is the right word. I needed darks, mediums and lights in each color group. I came out with three different color groups with a total of nine fabrics and a tenth for the boarder, which my pattern did not have, but she decided would make it nicer. I LOVE the color we decided on for the boarder~ The majority of the fabrics I am using are Batiks.
This will be my biggest quilt to date (given I've only made three). The Fish being the largest till now. This one will be a good ten inches longer and just a bit wider than that one.
I also set up my new computer at work. Tomorrow will be like going into a whole new office. New computer, new chairs, decor etc. and the promise of a new quilt in the making! Onward!
