Designing done........

I finished sewing the stratas and now need to get busy sewing.  I need this off the wall before Monday when my next TAW class starts.  After seeing it all up there I think I would have rather had the lavender at the top which would have put half of the blue at the top of the quilt and half at the bottom.  I still love it though.  It ended one strip short of a full match to the left edge but that won't be noticeable on a bed.  This one should finish around 80" x 100".
Here are the 2 Amaryllis blooms together.  The one on the left is in its final stage and starting to droop a little.  I think there might be 5 flowers on the one to the right, 2 bloomed so far.

Now I am really going to have to start a collection just to make this quilt!!! I just might start on Wednesday.... field trip to some fabric stores!

I like the red at the top. Kind of makes me think of a valance over a window to the rest of the quilt.

Next to your colorwash quilts, this is my favorite. I just love how the colors dance throughout the quilt with all those vibrant colors, and the cupcakes peeking though. Just gorgeous Wanda.

I like the lavendar just where it is. Very nice!

With the zig-zag set I notice all the colors more somehow, how they move across. These colors are terrific together and make each other glow even more.

If I'd seen those colours beforehand, I would never have expected them to work together but they look spectacular.

A nice Sunday treat to go back and look at your week of posts. Your TAW students work, so wonderful, monthly sew in flannel, Amaryllis blossoms, and today your sensational stratas ready to be stitched together.

Better than looking at any quilting book. I can zoom in and see all your great detail.

We still are enjoying a winter of springtime temps. And I see you are in good ole IL. winter temps.

This is beautiful. I love the sense of flowing motion that comes from the design.
