I've been piddling on getting this one started for a while now, thinking this one would give me a little break occasionally from my FRIENDS OF BALTIMORE which has SO MANY tiny pieces. I decided to start with the bride block first so her fabrics and colors would set the tone for the rest of the
quilt. I must admit, starting from scratch with choosing your own choice of fabrics and colors doesn't come easy for me. It takes me forever to get it straight in my head, pulling tons of fabrics out to audition only to make a big mess…….well, if I make her dress pink…..OR, maybe it should be yellow…..should I use just Civil War fabrics……and I don't want to use the same colors as my Friends of Baltimore quilt…and on it goes. I'm hoping a lot of you out there get the picture and I'm not alone in my struggles. I'm embarrassed to say how long it has taken me to get this far……BUT……here is a peek into where it is headed.
…….and for those of you who are thinking I should make those green striped buds all go the same direction, well, I probable agree but I'm NOT doing them over. The stripes are the 3rd fabric I've traded out. My bride also looks like she's been hit in the forehead with something. Maybe that's the reason there wasn't a groom in the original quilt….lol. I've also been blogging for 8 yrs. this week. How 'bout that!
