So I’ve been working on my son’s quilt this past week. It’s okaaaay. I mean, I love the fabrics he picked out – very vibrant! I love the pattern – in the books. But now I’m starting to lay out the quilt top before I piece it together and, I don’t know, I just don’t love it. I thought the grey would be a nice background to make the colours pop. It is the perfect shade of grey, it actually shows up in a few of the other fabrics. I guess there is just a bit too much of it for my liking. My son’s favourite colour is blue (the vibrant cobalt blue that he picked out) but that isn’t the colour that’s popping on this quilt. His second favourite colour is yellow (lemon – also the colour he picked out). I’m thinking I have a few choices…
1. Continue on, finish it and piece a ‘flip side’ of the same quilt that I will like better.
2. Finish this one in a smaller size and use it for something else.
3. Add in more blue and yellow to throw the balance of the colours. Saturate it with blue and yellow basically.
Well, what are your thoughts? I’d love some feedback on this little quandary of mine.
