    designing new quilt, seeking know-how

    Morning, i am designing a new quilt for DD. She has requested "Lady in the Lake" . I'm using violets/purples and greens to make the blocks. Greens to symbolize our beloved Ireland, violets to complement since she likes purples.
    Now here is my design question: i am going to scrappy piece the violets and the green half triangle squares with white . I haven't decided whether to make the big triangles in the center, white and violet or white and green.
    Also wondering how to best set the half triangle squares. I'd like to "watercolor" the quilt. So which value starts in the center? Light or dark?

    before you speak T.H.I.N.K.
    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Can you design in a quilt design program and change the colors around until they appeal to you?
