My Creative Space
I wasn't going to join in this week but thought I might just blog about my new project that is buzzing around in my head at the moment. I am going to design a boys quilt, not a little boys quilt but more a big boys quilt. Here are the backgrounds, I am going to be drawing some applique soon but I have decided on these dark backgrounds, I didn't want to go for black but sort of wanted that impression so have gone for lots of dk greys with plenty of texture. I will be doing raw edge applique and use a nice heavy black thread. The applique will be in quite bright colours and I will probably be going for solids as I have seen some Day in the Country Solids that are bright but with a bit of subtleness to them which I think will work well with the grey. I worked on a sketch last night and my son just said "SWEET" so I guess that means it passes the coolness gauge on a 10 year old going on 20 something.
