I showed Lindaly and Secundogeniture the pink swatches I've been making. We went down to the basement and headed straight for the pool table. I will tell you - the pool table has never received so much attention in all its life!
Secundogeniture quickly began offering his expert 14-year old designer advice on the pink blanket. Last time you saw it, the blanket looked like this. But with a little teamwork, and Secundogeniture's designer advice, we rearranged the swatches according to his ideas. Here's the semi-final result.
He wanted the colors to go together diagonally - and I had just about enough squares to do so. While we all like the red and white swatch in the bottom left corner, I don't have another one like it for the opposite corner. In the end, I decided to make two more contrast heart swatches for those last two corners. After that I'll be able to address the task of joining the swatces and adding the edge. Ooh la la! I have to set this aside for a few days as I have a very busy week ahead of me. But I plan to have this blanket done just in time for Valentine's Day. I think it will be appropriate!
Don't you just love collaboration? I think I may have to consult Secundogeniture more often!
