Still Fussing Over Pansies

I feel like I have been making pansies for about 100 years. With two HOYH quilts on the go, it just never ends. And look what I found at the bottom of my KFC stash! Yup, a gorgeous pansy print. If I had known I owned this (and I most certainly didn't know), I would have fussy cut the gorgeous heads instead of making them.
aren't they so pretty??
Which isn't to say that I don't love my created pansy motifs - because I do,
there's a skill and satisfaction in finding just the right fabrics making these characters come to life.
It's just that I have SO MANY things I'd like to make that anything to save me time is very welcome
Oh well, I suppose I can't complain about making my own pansy pattern, right?!
As Part 3 of HOYH approaches, I'm thinking non stop about my bright version of the quilt.

You know my gentle one? The one on the left hand side here in the pic, well that one is behaving beautifully. Sure, I still have to pick fabrics, but they behave themselves so well. Whereas I thought my 'bright' HOYH quilt would be the easy one, it's turning out to be a ridiculous circus of fabric switching. I have changed the background 7 times and I'm exhausted. You see that purple polka dot print? I'm back to that one. It's come full circle and was momentarily replaced by hot pink, pink stripes, olive stripes, the orange polka dots in the pansy images above, the yellow and grey polka dots in the image above and the KFD Aboriginal Dots. Phew, I'm exhausted. 

The only thing I can agree on is that 2019 is the year of polka dots. They just keep on happening. 
 'Hold Onto Your Heart' is a paid BOM 
It's a breathtaking quilt full of meaningful symbols and beauty. The floral border is a triumph which offers an additional  pieced option - making it versatile for all skill levels. Perfect for lovers and enthusiasts of applique. 

You can start this BOM today!
