Heart Note Alley's 14th and Last 'ticking' Band
This band is the last of those 'tweener' rows that are more than just fillers but are accents of shape and color that hopefully complement the larger rows with their own statements.
I have been working on other designs as you can see to the right with the Acorn Patch. What I've become quite certain of in these few months of trying my hand at designing patterns is that each one has to mean something to me or they just don't work at all. It has become my way of 'speaking' of my experiences and my tastes and while I'm sure they won't appeal to a mass market, I am hopeful that they will speak to particular people who will see more in them than shapes and colors.
Acorn patch combines one of my favorite color schemes, greens, golds and browns, with one of my favorite themes, northern woods and its seasons and the warmth that a quilt conveys.
Now I'm beginning that final large band of a floral spray in HNA and look forward to unwinding it from its stitching frame and seeing it in its entirety. Soon, God willing! :)
