But I originally planned for this to me a big quilt. And I cut accordingly. And so having finished a single bed quilt, I still had a box full of perfectly cut up blue, orange and low volume...
So I decided, what the hey! And made myself another Penny Patch. Penny Patch mark 2, if you will.
I think this one has more of the blues and less oranges - It's a bit more *pop* of colour and definitely has a higher ratio of proper white/low volume.
With this one, I am torn about whether I stick with the simple hand quilting which made me so happy the first time, or whether I push myself out of my comfort zone and go with some FMQ...
Time will tell, I guess. Until then, I'll tuck it in the cupboard with the other tops that I'm too scared to tackle, and hope that I get brave. I'm sure I will someday - I mean it's too pretty not to have out and being used.
But you know what the real kicker is? I still have a box full of perfectly cut up blue, orange and low volume... ;-)
Oh, and I found a linky to join!! So, I'm a day behind, but I'll fix that. I'm connecting with Kelly at My Quilt Infatuation for Needle and Thread Thursday :-)
