As I have mentioned before, I find my digital camera a very useful design tool. For example, this week I have been working on a small quilt (70x90cm) as a potential gift for friend that provides great hospitality when I travel to quilting events further afield. I was getting bogged down on what order to place the last couple of strips so I took some photos and placed them side by side for comparison.
Then I coloured the background to approximate the colour of my friend’s lounge room walls:
I immediately rejected one of the layouts but, in a holiday-induced vagueness, was wavering on the other two. A quick consultation with Erica, got me over this impasse and now I’ve nearly completed quilting the piece.
I’ll show you the quilt when it is completed but which layout do you prefer?
