As it has been raining for 2 days and I cannot paint...:-( I have taken some time to start on the design process for my doll quilt (you can always leave dusting .. right? :-)
As I have decided to make my quilt square.. I thought of this book, that I once had out of the library but liked so much that I bought it!
Now I don't aspire to make a Rhapsody quilt!! They are a-ma-zing!! Mostly made of solids, very intricate and take months and months to make....(if not years!!)and maybe, just maybe I dare to start one... but not just yet.. as time is short at the moment and time is what you need for these..
However, I decided to go with Ricky Tims' principle of mirror designing... You take a square, fold it in four, then in four again on the diagonals. You end up with a triangle of 1/8th of the whole square. Ricky then explains the design process and drawing these few lines on the triangle isn't as easy as it looks!
Transferring these lines in a mirror image onto the next 1/8th and so on.. leaves you with the complete design;
So far so good...
Colourmatching the colouring pencils to try out colourways (oh this will be so much easier when I get my EQ7!! will this be the last time I go with the 'old-fashioned' method??)
I have come up so far with two colourways... This one;
or this one;
What do you guys think??
