En Provence - headed for the last linky
Today is the last linkup for En Provence over at Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville's Quips and Snips.
Much as I'd hoped to have a finished top to show off, time was not on my side.
I've actually got all the neutral 4-patches sewn, and am starting to assemble those final borders. Nine blocks was a great plenty for a useful sized quilt, so I'm not going for the full sixteen blocks of Bonnie's pattern.
I substituted orange for the magenta, and used blues instead of the greens, and I'm very happy with how it's coming out. (In real life, the orange isn't quite so flare-y, and the yellows aren't quite so bright. Not to mention that the purples look more purple, too. My camera doesn't like this quilt at all...)
Once again, my thanks to Bonnie Hunter for a wonderful mystery quilt! This adventure takes me right out of my comfort zone - making components with no idea what the blocks will look like. It's also a real exercise in trust, what with all the fabric and time invested in the great unknown.
Last year I made Allietare, and this year it's En Provence. I've very pleased with both!
So head on over to Bonnie's place for the last linkup. Enjoy the fruits of our labor!
