Day 54 – Nantucket Rose
April 5, 2008
This is DEFINITELY another one of my favorites. (I have a lot of those) We created this large wallhanging to show off our Cape Cod fabric collection, and I love the way it turned out. I think it is a very classic quilt, with traditional piecing, but in the urn, we created a unique flower arrangement, so that it did have a fun little twist to it. We also chose a very classic color combination, keeping everything in the tan/brown/chocolate family, and only adding a spark of burgundy, and green.
If you ask Cori, she will tell you that this project is ‘Myra size’ which means that it is probably 70″ x 70″ square. For some reason, I really do like this size. It’s an extra large wallhanging, and I love those. Most people do find this an un-practical size, but I enjoy making quilts, they don’t always have to be practical. So I have a question for you. Do you choose projects to make, based on their finished sizes? Because with some quilt patterns, the finished size is really odd. So does that matter to you? Let me know what you think, so that in the future, I know if I need to designs quilt to be a bit more practical.
See you tomorrow.
