Tweaking

I finished this top over the weekend, a new design. I think I like it. It was inspired by the 'Wonderland Garden' quilt (see the sidebar), but it turned into something very different.
I'm going to make it in a more muted, maybe more sophisticated color palette and see if the design holds up. This is a print in the Woodland Delight collection.
So far these are my choices. It needs a bit more tweaking and I have to choose the two solids I'm going to use.
(Hope Valley, Riley Blake Andrea Victoria, Moda dots, Mingle squares, Jackie Shapiro dots, FMF seeds, Joel Dewberry woodgrain, gray pindot, gray large dot, Jackie Shapiro stripes, Lizzy House stripes and a Kaffe paperweight print)

Funny, I've been feeding a grey obsession lately... I'll have to see what you come up with.

Jennifer said...

Those pinks and grays go together swimmingly.

When you wrote "sophisticated palette" I got a little concerned -- that didn't sound like the Jacquie I know and love! But then I saw your fabric choices....LOVE! Actually reminds me of a shirt I bought this weekend. Can't wait to see how it comes out!

FMF gray seeds just makes me swoon. I don't have even a scrap of that. Completely missed the bandwagon when it went through town and now I'm paying the price--sometimes literally. But seeds are super hard to find.

Anyway, that color palette is fabulous.

I wonder if it's just my monitor but the grey seeds almost have a green cast compared to the other greys (which read 'bluer')...

I can't wait to see it in both colourways. LOVE the KF paperweight in there.

I love reading your blog, actually "looking at the pictures". You do awesome work. Your stitching is perfect. What kind of sewing machine do you use?

Hmm. I like the original colors! Could the new pallette have just a bit of color??
