I am participating in 'One Flower Wednesday' and am about to start my garden! I have a stack of brights that I was planning on using for my flowers and a stack of a sort of 'washed out' solids that match. I was using my calendar as inspiration and was thinking I would follow it using the yellow for the centers and surround each flower with white. As I started cutting and thinking about this, and the more I thought about it, the more unsure I became. I thought I would lay out my pieces and see what you all think about it. I am now unsure if I should continue with how it is in the calendar or use the solids as centers with brights around and no white in between.....or, yellow for centers with brights and the flowers would be sewn together, maybe even making flowers with the solids so after being sewn together there would be a mixture of bright printed flowers and solid flowers. Ohhhh, I'm liking that idea!!! LOL I need some opinions here on what you think would look best!
Here is my calendar photo that I was planning on following.
Here are my brights with the solids on the inside and you can see what it would look like with the white around them. These would have yellow centers. The pictures really do not show just how bright these prints are.
Here they are, without the whites, just regular GFG's with the solids as centers.
And here they are with just brights with yellow as centers. Maybe I would use the solids to make flowers too, with yellow centers and mix them in with the brights.
Gosh, just making this post has helped me to work it out in my mind. LOL Funny how that works. I sat up there in my sewing room unsure of what to do, then I come to my computer and write about it and now I think I'm liking the idea of making them smaller, just brights around the center and also some solids around a center and mixing them. I suppose the larger flowers would also take longer to make. Please tell me what your opinion is on this, I would really appreciate it. Thanks xo
