Square in a Square

Debbie’s beauty is up next on the frame.  Isn’t it modern and delicious?   The high contrast really works.

I’m working on some design ideas.  I want to highlight the circle forming behind the vertical and horizontal lines.  This quilt reminds me of ice crystals! When I start designing a quilting approach for my client’s quilts, I like to use my tablet to draw on the image.  I use it to visualize my ideas and, more times than not, I come up with motifs that I couldn’t have dreamed without the trial and error. I use Adobe Photoshop Elements but any paint program would work. In this case, I kept seeing circles behind the horizontal and vertical lines.  I wanted a motif that would give motion and action to the top.  Plus, this top has such a modern feel that I could let my imagination fly.

Here’s what I’ve come up with so far.

What do you think?  I’ve sent it to Debbie, and I’m looking forward to hearing her opinion.
