Back a couple of years ago, I completed a kit quilt (purchased at "Patchwork with Gail B") called "Forbidden Palace". It was bright Japanese prints done up in rectangle-shaped "snowball" blocks, using black in the corners and borders for contrast. I love how that quilt turned out and have been wanting to do another one with a different style of prints. These oriental peacock prints are exactly what I've been looking for.
So here's the design:
|I haven't decided if I want the dark green going around the center |
to be as wide as it's shown here. I'm thinking it might look better
if it's only about an inch or maybe 1.5" wide.
|My new work table gives me just enough space to lay out these|
blocks. It's a whole lot easier on my back than laying them on the floor!
|The center is all together. 630 individual pieces so far.|
