I’ve arranged and rearranged blocks and pieces of blocks, auditioning colors and arrangement. I’ve even worked in the colors orange and pink, which I didn’t even
Orange seems to add warmth to the cool blue tones. I’ve chosen to use yellow, mostly orange, to rust for variation.
My friends in the office talked me into just trying a few blocks with pink. I know I made a funny face, but decided to try it anyway. To my surprise, pink added the sparkle and movement the quilt needed to bring out the New York Beauty block design!
The Editor, Jean, has challenged me to get it done for a late summer/fall issue of Love of Quilting. I think that’s just the challenge I need to do it. Wish me luck!
