I'm using the top left deep purple (Kona Regal) for the background (you know I love my saturated - and purple - backgrounds!). I'm going to make the diamonds scrappy in blues and purples - some that almost blend with the background. Mostly because I'm obsessed with cobalt blue right now, and the purples seem to work with it juuuust right.
The stars will be light gray for a nice contrast. Or, I might end up switching the scrappy and the gray placement. I still have time to decide!
It will be a happy, scrappy, cool-colored baby quilt for some special baby out there (or wall - baby quilts can double as wall-hangings, yes?). :) I'm already contemplating the quilting - I'm thinking of some lovely echoes in those diamonds. I love how Yvonne quilted hers to life!
The Snowflake Shimmer QAL runs through September 23. I hope you'll join us! It's wintery without being WINTERY, you know? There's nothing wrong with wintery of course, but I just happen to be one of those quilters who rarely sews seasonal items. Plus, the quilt features a lovely modern layout. Yvonne is so kind, helpful, and thorough in her directions and patterns. I can't recommend her enough (I might be a little biased because she's my good friend, but hey, it's all true!). :)
