My flowers are growing and my technique is slowly improving. I'll never be a master, but it is certainly good enough for me!! I am auditioning background fabrics to see how scrappy I want to go.
I also found a cheddar that I thing goes well, a repro that has a tiny red flower on it. There won't be a lot of this color showing (at least at this point I don't think so). When you design as you go, sometimes your original design changes as the quilt grows. I'm also auditioning greens. So far I am very pleased with the way it looks.
I have been collecting pink and red fabrics for a while, but had not decided on a pattern yet, so I'm happy to be using these together. There's more coming soon.
