I spent yesterday making HSTs from aqua and gray fabrics for this baby quilt. The solid is Kona Azure, until I ran out, so there are also patches of a tire track print in with it. The grays include Fairy Frost and Mirror Dot. They do lend a little glitz and sheen. Oddly, what appears to be the very shiny parts of the zigzags is a gray and white “bubble” or dot print, a plain cotton that’s not shiny at all.
Observant viewers will spot two turned patches, and numerous places where I need to redistribute the blocks so that the colors don’t clump. I went though and fixed a lot, and left it to percolate overnight before I sew it together. The design wall is so helpful for this, and so is a camera. I just use my phone, and sometimes don’t even snap the picture. Just looking at it on the little screen helps me see things. Then I see more when I upload a photo to Twitter for the Twilters to check out. If early quilters had had camera phones there wouldn’t be nearly so many “intentional” mistakes.
(Okay, Spellcheck, I didn’t expect you to know “Twilters”, we just made that up last month. But “quilters”? You thought I meant “quitters”??? C’mon! Get with the program!)
I’m linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.
