I finished assembling the half-square triangles for my Carpenter's Wheel quilt. Once I square them up and cut out my blue squares, I can start assembling the quilt top.
This evening I laid some of it out on the floor to see how the prints worked together. I think it'll be okay.
I kind of wrestle with this because this isn't a quilt for me - it's a quilt for my mom. If it was mine I'd put some orange or yellow in there to make things pop. But my mom is a very traditional quilter who likes a more muted palette, and I want to make a quilt that she'll like. No, scratch that...she likes my quilts. I want to make her a quilt that she'd be willing to have out in her living room. It's kind of hard when we have differing tastes. However, I think this is growing on me. At least the circle pattern kind of breaks things up.
I'm planning on giving the quilt top to her for Mother's Day. I can't wait to see her reaction. I hope it's good!
