Welcome to the new Lovelea Designs site! I am still working on the site, especially the shop, but I wanted to get it up and running so i can at least start posting again. It has been a process switch from blogger to a self-hosted wordpress site, but I am getting back into the swing of things and have quite a few projects to share! My latest WIP is another quilt using the same pattern as my Cotton Candy quilt I decided to name the quilt pattern reflected since Cotton Candy really only worked for the soft pastel version. I really wanted this version of the quilt to showcase the pattern itself more, and what better way to do that than use solids!
Since I recently acquired quite a few solids on my work anniversary I decided that I was going to make do with what I had. I grabbed 3 gradating blues for the background, and about 6 contrasting colors to go with and off I went. While cutting out the fabrics I realized that I wanted more of a variety of color on the front so I added a bright green and a bright red. I also replaced the light yellow with a light orange because I found the yellow to be not quite the right shade (it looks nice in the picture but stood out too much in person). I also realized that I wasn’t going to have enough blue for my background (and my local shop didn’t have 2 of the blues I needed) so i ended up picking up a fourth blue and a little more of the darkest blue to really give me the gradated look I was going for.
Hope to have this top done by Friday. Thanks for reading!
