    I'm sorry but I'd prefer to keep this one to myself as it's intended to be a competition piece. I can't prevent copying though I know and if you've got EQ, the blocks are all in the library... ;-)

    Connie I'll PP the twisted blocks but probably regular piece the log cabins. :-D

    I think it is fantastic! And I'm not even a purple-lover, but I love that! I should really take the time to learn how to use EQ. I have it but it seems complicated :)

    I don't think I've even scratched the surface of mine - these are only library blocks, it's really NOT that complex! :-D

The colours are vague as well and might change once I get in an LQS but I'm thinking batiks... this would be for the contemporary section of the Festival of Quilts, which asked for a modern take on traditional quilting. Does this fit the bill? I thought to regular piece the LCs, PP the twisted, machine applique and FMQ to be decided... any comments gratefully received and when the design is finalised, I'd like to post progress so you can all nag, ermmm, I mean, ENCOURAGE me to finish it in time for August! :lol:
    beautiful. Looks like a lot of work, but beautiful

    DITTO ON THAT! I like it the way it is, found the center the most stunning part, makes the whole quilt. Good luck in competition. It's a winner!!!

    I love it all except....the center. There's just something slightly off about it to me, the twisted LC's I mean. The rest of the quilt flows so well, but this just doesn't "sync" with the rest. But the rest of the design and colors are gorgematious!! :mrgreen:

    I prefer the 1st center better; the dark in the center of this design looks like it's a mouth getting ready to swallow something. You can't create a twist that would incorporate all four blocks? or maybe go with a brighter center rather than a dark one if you like the 2nd design better? Overall, the design is stunning; I love the twists!

    The mouth thing is exactly what I saw and why I changed it! I prefer the original one myself but have some issues still with it - I know what Gai means... :? Just been looking - it's the 'box' effect around those 4 twist blocks that is bothering me - will have a play and see what I can come up with...

    I've changed the colours in the centre to blend the twist LC blocks into the regular LC blocks surrounding them to try and get away from that 'box'effect. I think this is an improvement, how about you? :-D

    K, how about taking the corner blocks and putting them back to back somehow. I can see how they would look like lips if they were turned one way, but the other way, with the center small square? Oh heck, I'm not the creative one, you are. :roll: :wink:
