daylesford quilt: update

- back to the design wall today

                                           - I like the mix of pieced blocks within the rounds of logs.

My main thought as we start the new year is to share more unfinished work here on the blog. If you ever stop by Audrey from quiltfolk you will know she is a process quilter. Her posts are a delight to read, I always enjoy her thoughts as much as her process and photos. 
I  think there is such a lot to learn by sharing, what’s working well and what's not working so well…it’s all part of the process of making art  quilts! 

I've gone back to the design wall today as I add a couple of more rounds to my version of the 'Daylesford' quilt. It's a "chose - your - own - adventure" project … a medallion of sorts, with a sample of blocks, scrappy {so very much Jen Kingwell's style}, and pieced together like a giant log cabin, {wink wink} it changes each time I come back to it! 
But of course, the important question as I progress... is it balanced? If yes, then onto the next round.  

And so here are my latest thoughts - I'm focusing on keeping things not too heavy, not too dark, with a vintage/modern vibe. And I want to try and have some sort of flow from one strip to the other... oh, and to stick to mainly blues & peaches, repeating fabrics for continuity. 
Finally, I'm aiming where possible to alternate those florals with geometrics, strips and spots. 
And I'm happy so far! 

Off now to check out a few of my favourite blogs
- love reading about all those surprises & satisfactions in your work too.

I'm a big fan of process posts. You have a very clear style, particularly in your use of florals and colour, and I would find it interesting to learn more about how you make your choices.

your use of the fabric is always so interesting. We use such different fabrics it is always interesting to see how others quilt and what fabrics they use

I'm so glad that you are going to share more of your work in process. We all learn so much from watching the way others work/create. Thank you!!

What a fun way to incorporate some of your sample blocks. Delightful fabric choices. What fun ou are having with this. Thanks for sharing your progress and decisions.

I completely agree with you about sharing process pictures in blog posts! When bloggers offer a Linky to a post only with a quilt finish, it's often not possible to participate. Guess I know that I have too many WIPs going at once, but since I truly work on all of them, sharing the process is a good thing. Your Daylesford quilt concept is really interesting. Sort of an improv-type quilt as you've chosen your "prompts" - vintage-y, a color family, repeating prints, balance. You've set your parameters, so now all you need to do is cut and sew! Looking good. Have fun with it!
