I think I have found the pattern I want to make for the quilt. It is stylistic enough like a bicycle wheel without being, you know, a bicycle wheel. The pattern is gender neutral and will work well with a variety of color schemes….
But still, with a pattern this looks like I would essentially have to cut the wheels out…make and quilt the quilt in the diamond pattern, and then applique the wheels on. I plan to not use the triangles, but to instead place a nice plain border and not have the jagged edges.
I went by the local quilt store today. I took the image on a flash drive, imagining that they could plug it into their computer and look at it with me. No computer in the place. The ladies were not extremely helpful either, oddly as I was the only one in the store. I was disappointed as this little store is right in town, and they offer classes. I was imagining it would be a place where I could get my supplies and also possibly get some help, but they seemed to not be that interested. They were also surprised that I found the above image with no attachment (which surprised me too, but it really is just a great design.)
Soooo, I am going to look around for something in Orlando.
I’m thinking of using a mild green color and then for the wheels possibly using two different types of a dark contrasting blue. I do not like white as a color on a quilt, things always get spilled or stained.
Any Ideas about the color combos, I am not always so good at these?
PS: My hip is feeling much improved over the past two days. FINALLY.
