Eventide Update and Onward

Eventide is a process... well, it's a
a thinking process...
and here is what I'm thinking now.
Remember when the brown scared me? Well I'm trying the brown again. I'm thinking that it might work.
I'm going to do the inner border squares in red to balance it a bit.
I've decided to just use one red fabric instead of scrappy reds because it's just scrapppy enough (I think).

Now to the onward part...
DS and DIL were home over the weekend. Jilly Bean and I tore it up in the sewing room...
well, she did more tearing up than me. This is a picture of the quilt she whipped up.
She had cut out double the amount she needed, so I had to make one too. Mine are still in
blocks though. She got hers put all together. It is from a pattern of Natalia's at Piece n Quilt.
But what I did get put together was my pinwheel La Playa quilt.
Now I need to concentrate on the borders.

I love this fabric group from Minick and Simpson so much! Charlovioux. I think that's how you spell it.
I think I mentioned before that I got carried away with making HST's for pinwheels from my
jelly roll for the quilt pictured above.
 Today I was over at Quilting Daze and saw what Darlene had made
 from a MBS pattern using the same fabric line.  Since I have a gazillion HST's...
It looks like that is the candidate for my next quilt!
 Please go take a look and read her posts.
(this is a picture of Darlene's quilt; thank you Darlene)

I think your eventide looks spectacular! the brown adds so much contrast and just makes the whole thing pop! I also love Natalia's patterns with that style, will have to make one myself at some point.

I do like the brown! All are beauties and gosh...you've been busy!

Eventide looks very beautifull.

Scrappy is harder for me than a planned, coordinated quilt. I tend to do too scrappy, which some people say is not possible! I like the browns, it makes it more cohesive.

The quilt with the appliqued flowers is gonna be sensational! So cute!

Darlene said...

Love your Eventide quilt - the brown looks wonderful.

Jilly Bean was very productive - very cute quilt.

I'm glad you like my version of the MBS quilt - it makes me smile. :-) And, thanks for the 'shout out'.

Sinta! I L O V E the brown in your Eventide, love it, love it, love it. You had one brown star once upon a time and it appealed to me, but a whole quilt of them, amazing. And a totally different direction from the pattern, you made it your own. I think if you stick with the brown and use brown for the inner border it will look amazing!

That flower quilt is adorable, La Playa another winner. What a great weekend!
