Pre-work to the workshop included figuring out our colour palette. I wanted something with these colours.
I first coloured the numbered version, which would have allowed me to use the measurements that Libs had mapped out:
I also tried out the Colour Your Own version and posted them on Instagram to help me decide which one to do.
The Colour Your Own version won hands down. Even Libs weighed in. :D
During the class, I cut out the pieces and put together the first two columns. While I was really happy with my Y-seams, the colours felt very 70s.
The class with Libs -- great variety of fabric choices, eh?
When I got home, I laid out all of the pieces on the design wall. Meh. Not working for me.
I replaced some of the yellows and oranges with some lighter purples. A bit better.
Then I replaced all of the yellows and oranges with more values of purples and magentas.
Definitely better, but not quite there. Any recommendations?
