I’ve been asked, by a group from a private school, to create a quilt that can be auctioned at a fundraiser in May. The quilt needs to incorporate the school colors of blue, yellow and white, as well as pieces of the uniforms.
I’m having some difficulty and could use some help.
The first photo shows blue 9-patch blocks with a piece of uniform fabric in the centers. The crest in the upper corner will appear in all four corners of the overall quilt.
When I looked at this sample section from across the studio, I worried that the 9-patch blocks would seem to heavy and solid.
The second photo shows how I revised the 9-patch blocks to have white centers, with some of the centers being the crest. (I don’t have enough crests to put in each of the 9-patches.) For this version, the crest in the corner will come out.
But, where do I put the plaid uniform pieces?
Any suggestions? Do you have a preferences between the first version and the second?
