With the season changing into fall I felt the urge to pick up an ‘old’ project again. All my temporarily (?) abandoned projects are boxed up with their names on the boxes. So I got the ‘Phebe’ box Saturday morning, and got re-acquainted with the pattern and the fabrics I had bought for this quilt. I put everything I had on my design wall and there she was again: Phebe!
I started this quilt about two years ago and it seems to be my fall/winter project. I abandon it when the season changes into spring and pick it up about 6 months later again. Do you have projects like that?
Having something like a design wall now really makes this a lot easier now, I mean making the fabric choices, which I find is the most difficult thing of this quilt. My so-called design wall is really a simple thing, one of those systems you hang paintings from, a large piece of flannel and some hooks, that’s all.
I am really glad I finished the applique centre and whenI look at what I have so far I really need a few lighter pinks in my stars and a few more of the darker pink/cherry stars, don’t you think? Do you see the star with that color that really stands out? Any other ideas, tips? I welcome them.
I am making only a few minor changes to the original pattern by Di Ford, no major ones, I just love the pattern as Di designed it.
So now you know what I will be doing those dark long fall and winter evenings when the storms are raging outside, especially here in The Hague, the infamous November storms. Although while writing this blog post I heard on the radio the first autumn storm will be with us this afternoon and evening!
