Attended my first batmitzvah and was quite moved by the young people sharing a lesson. The girl we were there fore-- Jenny-- wore purple and spoke about her love of the color.
I was moved to make a quilt for her-- something that combined purple as well as her faith.
I found the first image. I liked it because it subtly communicates the star of David without being an overtly Jewish design.
Then I went through my stash and pulled out all my purples, and I started making the pieced diamonds. The second photo is my design wall with the diamonds put up.
I really really dislike the results. It's clear that at least for this design, prints-- or at least the prints I had on hand-- do not do as well as batiks and other abstract prints.
Any advice? Suggestions for something else to do with these diamonds.
Or more likely: anyone want these pieces and the uncut fabric that goes with them? I know I'm not going to finish this particular quilt.
