Here's a pic of the second Winter Garden block that I've done (color is kind of washed out, not a good pic). This one is called "Coxcomb". It is only fused down at this point, I need to machine stitch the edges next. This is the last one that will have the deep purples for the flower heads and buds. The rest will have a deep red in them (see fabrics in second pic). I'm pretty much following the color choices from the pattern, but making a few alterations here and there.
I've been refining the color palette for this quilt a little. I've added in the purples and reds you see at the bottom of the pic, and removed the blues. I had intended to use those blues for the birds that I have planned for the borders, but I'm going to do them in blacks now instead, i.e., Blackbird Designs. :) Quilting is an art form and art is all about change and adapting as we develop the piece, so we make adjustments as we go along. Sometimes minor, sometimes major. But if something isn't working for you, shake it up and make a change.
