Jun 13: Contacted David: Yes, I would love to get this as a Christmas present. I know that she loved this pattern when she saw it...I don’t know about the colors or all the steps involved. I’m sure she would like fabric that feels nice to the touch. The colors in the picture are quite striking, but I don’t know if they would be good for our bedroom
Jun 27: Today David & I finally got down to business. We looked through lots of fabrics on Fabrics.com focusing on batiks. After our phone conversation, I auditioned fabrics into the EQ7 drawing & added a row of blocks.. We'll continue this process as David has time until we arrive at a plan.
Jul 01 & Jul 07: More fabric selection phone adventures. Over & over : They are all just so beautiful! David has made his main selections so I will now select coordinating fabrics for the 9-patches from David's vast list of favorites.
Jul 09: We have a plan. Looks so simple once all is said and done. David agreed to the simpler inner borders so the diamonds are gone.
Jul 10: Fabric is ordered. Must say David is a perfect gentleman & a pleasure to work with. So glad there is plenty of time before Christmas to enjoy the piecing and quilting as much as I have the planning.
