Finally a New Quilt Started

I have been working on this off and on for several weeks.  I have a plan.  However, it was not working.  Last night I trashed it all except my sketch on the background.  Determined, I started again today.  Planning, in my head, the neutral colors I would use.  I started again.  Followed some of the 'rules'.  I was hating the work.

Finally, I broke free = did my own thing.  I know I am now on the right track FOR ME because I'm excited and very enthused.

Design Board in my 'Working Hall' 

The background is my bed in the alcove  Opposite the bed is my computer, library and bill paying area; in effect my study.  On the left is the one bock that I like.  On the right is a lovely piece of fabric I found in my stash of 'decorator fabrics'.  The white marks are my chalk sketch of a person on the background purple I plan to use.

One Quilt Block

It is happily a wonderful start for me.  After much trial and error, I feel good about this.  Lots of texture, fringe, gold trim and shiny next to homespun = all the things I like.
