At last, I’ve made a proper start on my Marsala Spice quilt!
Here are some assembled blocks! I’m thrilled by the colours so far. As a reminder, here’s the palette I picked from Pantone’s website:
Not a bad match, eh? 🙂 So there’s good progress, but I have a problem. Part of the problem is that I’m short of my over-dyed Marsala colour so I can’t make the big 72″ x 72″ quilt I’d had in mind with it. And I really like that quite strong, graphic look of the basic blocks, so in many ways I don’t want to detract from it by adding complications. I still have another “marsala” fabric that may yet get added into the mix, but it is patterned and looks quite different to my solid Marsala and I’m having trouble picturing how it’s all going to work together.
When I get a chance I’m probably going to churn out some more blocks using the leafy fabric, probably in both large and small versions, and then skiffle everything about until I get something I like. Spare blocks will probably end up on the back.
