On my design surface is the ongoing project for my sister-in-law's birthday quilt. This design is inspired by the Willow Weave quilt jelly-roll-sew-along that Aunt Reen did last year. I made a wedding quilt for a nephew from that pattern, and another sister-in-law, Laura, liked it a lot. However, I changed the size of the pieces to 3x7 finished, in order to get a bigger views of the yummy prints, and probably won't put in the extra "band" section from Aunt Reen's design.
This ombre layout really pleases me and I got a thumbs up from my daughter and sister as well. Some of these are Kaffe Faussett prints, as is the stripe.
Here's a closeup of the purple section. That zinger print with the yellow got toned down enough to fit in nicely, but the two muddier batiks I showed yesterday were taken out. Each row will need another background square sewn on to one end or the other to complete the pattern--I left that off until I decided the final layout. The quilt will be 60x72.
