Description

This is project 3 from the Quilter's Academy Freshman Year.

More focus on strip piecing and also on creating a pleasing array of colors. I chose a set of fabrics from Moda's Nature's Notebook line, threw in a little Hoffman Gypsy Princess and some Delft blue.  Sadly, I did not buy enough of the Gypsy Princess to use that as a border. But I may have enough for a narrow border.

This will be for my mother. The fabrics remind me of the French Provencal fabrics that she likes so much.  I do think the top is a little bland, so now that I have taken an applique class, I am thinking about adding some contrasting flowers to the corner for a little variety.  I do like the softness of the top and the color palette.

Next steps are, as with my other QA projects, borders, quilting and binding.
