I am back from my little Spring Break with family, and got back into the sewing room for a couple of hours over the weekend. I had started a new project, "Windmills", before I left, but was not happy with the jumble of prints and patterns.
This is what the quilt is supposed to look like. It is a true scrap quilt and the joy of it is the mixture of color and the riot of different prints.
My problem with it is that I really loved the colored prints I was using from Betsy Chutchian's Rachel Remembered. Upon reflection, I wanted to feature the prints more and eliminate some of the busy-ness that all those pinwheels next to each other creates.
I'd love to hear some of your thoughts. Should I let the quilt be "free" and have mixed color/print pinwheels all over the place, or be more controlled in the placement of color and eliminate some of the busy-ness of having pinwheels every which way?
