I was a bit hesitant after reading about Nicole's problems with her first choice of colors. I was even going to abandon this project and use the fabric for another project EXCEPT for the encouraging comments on my last post about my fabric choices (I do so appreciate your comments!) This afternooon I took my container with all my French General fabrics - Rouenneries, Rural Jardin, Lumiere de Noel and Maison de Garance - and sorted the fabrics by value - light, medium and dark. I didn't focus as closely on the colors so much as using the fabric that read strongly in each of the three values. Just making a decision to BEGIN has actually helped. I now feel motivated to work on my project.
Question for those of you working on Eventide? Did you cut the quarter square triangles the size printed on the pattern or did you cut them larger to resize the blocks?
Visit Thelmas' blog Cupcakes 'n Daisies to read about the updates and links to the other quilters participating in the Eventide sew along. It's inspiring to see the many different versions of Carrie Nelson's Eventide.
