Last night I finally got an idea. I decided to go with a basic 9 patch block and then fussy cut the cute costumed kids to sprinkled amongst black and white polka dotted alternating blocks.
I was really excited and stayed up late sewing 9 patches. Its been so much fun to work with colors that I wouldn't otherwise- purple, orange, green and black! With some yellow and aqua thrown in for good measure. And lots of polka dots of course.
Today I sewed some more and then layed everything out to make sure it was all going according to the grand idea in my head.
Enter my husband. In all fairness, I guess I only have myself to blame because I'm the one who asked for his opinion.
Evidently, it doesn't have enough orange. And it isn't Halloweeny enough.
argh. There goes my enthusiasm.
I guess this quilt is going to require more sitting and stewing.
Please pardon the horrible picture. Its not sewn together and its a little bit jumbled but I think you can get the general idea. I think I'll be adding more of the Halloween kiddies.
What do you think?
