I was playing around with the Midwinter Reds and decided to make some lighter Heartfire blocks without using the strong reds. I thought I would make just one..............
....and then another one....
Six blocks later, I finally stopped!
I incorporated the new blocks on the design wall, and instantly liked the new additions. I like the bolder, red blocks, but I love the softer blocks as shown here in the latest arrangement. I think the softer blocks make the quilt more interesting. My eye tends to travel around the quilt looking at the variation of colors.
|New version with lighter blocks incorporated|
Only seven more blocks to make, and they are going to be "softer" blocks, then I can start putting this one together. Check out Quilt Sue's version of Heartfire HERE. Sue is adding special touches to her version of Heartfire to commemorate her visit with me in California. I never thought I'd see the day when Sue embraced applique...or a-PLEE-kay as Sue pronounces it. When are you and Nancy coming back so we can a-PLEE-kay together and frighten all of the animals in the forest with our laughter?
