Churn dash top assembled

This is a picture of Margery's mini quilt which I used for inspiration for my yellow and purple quilt - what a darling - each of the small squares measures only a half inch square
This is my version which is three times the size at 1.5" per square
Doesn't work quite as well - insufficient contrast between the light and dark yellow (ignore the terracotta it's resting on a cushion)
Really wish I'd used the reverse side of the lighter yellow to make a marked difference
Might well do another version with stronger contrasts in different colours because I really love the design
Maybe carefully placed quilting in only the light areas might retrieve it a bit - we'll see
In the meantime - back to hearts - I know what I'm doing with them and that they work!!!

Gosh, Anne, that was quick! And doesn't it look great in spring-time colours? It's lovely.

BTW the first comment, from kijar, links into a "virus-checker" site - I'm not sure this is a good thing ...

I think it's lovely! I can't believe how tiny the green one is. Really a lovely design -- do make more!

I think it's very pretty as is, it is more subtle than the other one, but still gorgeous. You are very quick!

Yet another reason I want to upgrade to EQ6 - it lets you design quilts based on quilt blocks. Lovely work as usual!

It's very nice as it is Anne. I wonder what a purple border would do?

LOL at returning to your beloved hearts!
