Beginning A Back for Tropical Waves
I've been entertaining the notion of a purple batik for the back of my Tropical Waves Quilt. But I've been unable to find anything that really sparks my fancy, so today the top caught my eye and I started pulling out fabrics that looked like maybe they would match for the back. One single orphan block later, it started to come together. I like the way I grew the first block so well that I made a second just the same. I'm not certain where to go from here, but it's nearly dinner time and I have much to do before I call it time to make dinner.
One thought I had was to grow them up side by side like this, but I think perhaps I'd like to spilt them up a bit more like the picture below. Or maybe I should flip them again this time off point? Time will tell and hopefully some inspiration will find me in the next 12 hours or so. I'm not on a deadline, but it sure would be fun to come back to my tidy little mess and work on this a bit more. Haha, got you with my tidy little mess didn't I? Pet the pet, and hug the family, okay?
