Today, Mom and Brenda were over for a BBQ and I pulled out the blocks and some of my other projects and let them browse through. Mom immediately went to the blocks - I could see how she loved the colors and design. Her bedroom and master bath are done in pinks and peach's.
I told her how I test out designs for Ace Point Embroidery and that most of my test out's I make into pot holders and other small items. (Quick and easy gifts for later). But I didn't mention to her that this particular block was going to be a quilt for her. I think by her big smile as she was looking at them that she'll love this quilt. This first one is a corner, or i could add one of those borders that are points to this quilt and emb. one of these in each point. (not sure what they call that border, but I love the look).
I like this smaller border too - maybe for shashing. And then something a little larger like the next photo below for the first outer border.
Now I can cut my Heart's Desire pcs. and not feel like I'm not getting anywhere fast enough. I have so many idea's and not near enough time to get it all done in my lifetime. Or so it seems.
I also have to decide on which color's to use. The first block photo I did with a very light pink, peach and off white. I love how soft it is.
The rest of these were done with light pink, peach and then a reg. pink. They are brighter but still very pretty.
I think maybe I should have asked Mom which color combo she liked while she was here. I might take them over to her place when I visit her in a few days, then I'll know for sure.
Here is some other designs I've been testing. I don't know what to make with these little test out's yet. Brenda and Mom suggested I put some iron on backing onto them, and sell them on Etsy so that people can just iron them onto little girl's dresses, bags, etc. I wonder how well that would hold up? Hugs and have a great weekend. : )
