Remember this loveliness? Hmmm...mmmm... Well, I still love it oh so much. But I've decided to add these:
|Top to Bottom: Miscellany Flora, AMH Garden Party Teal, Love & Kisses by Prima|
Together I am hoping these bundles of fabric lust will equal...
I'm not a huge lover of the rectangular shaped quilt. I started with this layout as a balanced square at 12x12 rows...but shifted it to 12x13 as a challenge to myself. That 13th row may get "lost" by the end. I don't know why but I prefer square compositions. Strange? Perhaps. I've just read in Adventures in Design, a great book highly recommended by Piecemeal Quilts (without whose advice I would not have the teal in this design!), that square compositions require you to create direction. That a square "...needs you to fill the space; it's in limbo until you take action." (p. 24) Hunh, who knew? Well I like taking action - so let's do this Square.
I've already started cutting and can't wait to sew all these lovelies together. What compositions do you prefer to create? Have a square versus rectangle preference?
