As a beginning quilter (yeah... I know... I have been doing it for over a year now! how time flies... but still not as good as some who have done in half the time what I am going to achieve over the next year!), I am always keen on learning techniques and ... because I am afraid to get it "wrong", an avid follower of patterns.
I keep saying to all who will listen I would LOVE to design my own and just 'go with the flow' but I am never satisfied with what I make and put it in the bin.... It just doesn't look the same as all the loveliness I admire...
But... I have since realized that you cannot be a Rembrandt at first try.. so I will have to take baby steps first and just give it a go...
Here is my very first own design for a babyquilt... I tried to use primary colours and simple shapes but make it cheery at the same time. It still looks like a child's drawing to me, but maybe, in fabric, it will work?
Thank you to Kiyomi for spurring me on to try this. It was fun to try something outside my comfort zone (and I haven't 'coloured in' for years! lol!).
