So here is my quilt. Yeah, I know, its not full of pomegranates like Mrs. Buckner's quilt. I would drive myself mad with all that applique! I am just putting four sweet little love apples around the center block, in the light minty green triangles. I started this quilt in Jan 2010 as my round robin for the year. (Click on the link if you are interested.) I included the fabric with my center block that got passed around so the ladies would use civil war reproduction fabric as they added each border for me. I included that nasty light mint green thinking it would look okay, and not knowing really for sure if it were similar to cw repro fabric. Well, I know a lot more now than I did then, and it is NOT at all similar to civil war fabric colors. I don't want to take the quilt apart and replace it. That is why I want to cover it up a bit with love apples! I want to camouflage that hideous green, because the rest of the entire quilt is made with good quality civil war reproduction fabric.
Hopefully in a few days I will have the final picture of Rebekah's Pomegranates ready to see. I hope my plan does not backfire, and bring MORE attention to that ugly minty green! I always love participating in round robin quilts. 3 different ladies did the first complex borders for me, then I finished it up with the dark green, squares, rectangles, and the little dark green borders to make it bigger. I just remembered while typing this that I need to make a center block for quilt guild next month to begin this year's round robin exchange. Any suggestions?
