I've often said, the simpler the basic quilt design is....the more difficult it is for me to create a successful piece. This one was a hair puller for sure.
If you saw the last post......my idea was to highlight the black and white fabric with red. Unfortunately, the reds I had in my stash simply weren't right.....too bright, too pink, too dull. Sale-ability is also a factor.....in your face designs are what I prefer, but that's not necessarily the case for shoppers who wish to own a piece they can live with daily....and NOT tire of it.
