Looks like a zinnia bed..........

I took out the blocks that were more pastel and added 19 duplicate blocks that I sewed yesterday plus some more duplicates sewn the day before.  There are 2 of almost all of the blocks.  A few were leftovers from the green/pink quilt so there aren't duplicates of them.  It looks like a pixelated zinnia bed to me.  Below is the photo from yesterday so you can see how it has changed.

Zinnias should be the name of the quilt. Chris

Yes, it does remind one of a zinnia bed. The change is subtle, one that only you could achieve. It's such a pretty quilt!

Sheila said...

Oh my. I love, love, love your colorful beautiful quilt. It reminds me of some garden quilts in one of my KF books.
I'm still using your dishcloth pattern and I've passed along your pattern to some other bloggers. They do a good job washing dishes.

You're right, it does look like a wild profusion of zinnias! And so in keeping with your blog header. Beautiful!

You are SO right! It really is gorgeous and Zinnia Garden is the perfect name. You have the best eye for color!!!

Leslie said...

The quilt top is just beautiful; the colors and textures just blend together so beautifully, a real gift that you have.
I'm relieved that your dad is out of the hospital and set up somewhere safe. You can breathe again. :-)

How wonderful it looks and it is like a zinnia garden (sure do miss mine this year). What size are your individual squares, 2 1/2"?

Needled Mom said...

I does look just like a zinnia bed. I like the new look better.

What a difference it makes removing the pastels. It really is a grand designing job.

Wanda, just a super delight for the eyes. I smile just seeing it. I do like the pastels, I am sure you will come up with a creative way to work those up. Oh, if I could sew as fast as you. I have a hard time just making decisions in quilting.

I like the darker blocks together. Looking good.

Teri said...

I've been enjoying your series of "garden" quilts. Very lovely. Would love to have your stash, so that I could make quilts with such a variety of colors.

Maureen said...

You're right Wanda - does look a bed of brightly coloured zinnias.It's lovely.

Cathi said...

I agree - it should be called the zinnia quilt! It is fabulous and would be a wonderful touch of summer in the winter!

Sharon said...

That is looking so pretty! I like your comparison to a bed of flowers.

Sally said...

Watching you work on these 16 patch quilts is inspiring. I think its the greens that do it for me.

Mimi said...

Well look at that, these quilts sort all seem similar but seeing two of the maybe layouts on the wall with pictures really points to how hard you work to get the colors just so! Amazing
