After Monday's post about where my pinwheel quilt was going, it was quite apparent to me, that I needed to go back to the design process. For me, that always involves my sketch pad or graph paper, my favorite sketch pencils and something to color with.
Earlier this year, I took my AC Moore coupon and bought myself a set of the 150 Crayola Crayon Tower. I mean who doesn't need 150 of their favorite colors???? With this project, I finally got a chance to break them out and give them a test drive. Let me just say - LOVE IT. If you don't have a set yet - go get yourself one - just for you though - nobody under 18 allowed!!
Its does seem like a lot of wheels left to go - especially doing it all by hand, but as I always said, English paper piecing isn't a technique - its a vocation!
Actually, I think the one that I like the best was an arrow of light coming in from the right side and making a point surrounded by dark. Still, as I learned many years ago, its best to "Make visual decisions, visually." Which of course means that I'll eventually have to put them all up on the design board and try some of these sketches out.
But with all those blocks needing to be made, I'm sure that won't be anytime soon!
