I completed the piecing for this quilt.
I chose a simple design to accentuate the beautiful mandalas.
When I showed you the two mandalas side by side I had thought the design in the darker one would be the dominant element.
Exactly the opposite happened. You hardly notice the design in the darker strips.
This is a great example of how fabrics are influenced by what is next to them.
I am pleased with the overall design of this quilt.
I will now leave it on the design wall while I work on other things. I do that so I can study it and come up with a quilting design to enhance what I have already created.
I prefer to do a quilting design that is:
1. Simple to stitch
2. Doesn't require a lot of stops and starts.
3. Doesn't require marking to quilt.
When those criteria have been met it will be time to do the quilting.
