A New, Fresh Look
Remember my previous banner? The one with my Diamonds and Blooms quilt in the center?
|Center of Diamonds and Blooms from Paper Piecing Perfect Points|
|Placed my blog title and a few extra words in the center|
Then my blogging friend, Madame Samm, gently told me I needed to update that banner. From her designer's eye, that slab of white in the center of the quilt was too much. Yes, she was honest with me. I expect nothing less from friends. I don't like people to tiptoe around me. Just say what you mean; just don't be mean about it. I'm wearing my Big Girl pants!
She had one idea in mind, created it and asked me what I thought. Here is how she viewed my blog identity: I travel a lot, I use a lot of green in my quilts and she wanted folks to STOP and take notice.

I asked that there be some more quilts in there (as in a LOT of quilts). I absolutely love this font. She told me she DREW it - it's her authentic handwriting, can you believe it?!? And you know what? She didn't get her Big Girl panties in a wad. She actually had a backup design (and she NEVER has a backup). One with more color. That's what you see in the banner at the top of this page.

I like them both; it's the second one with more color that seemed to fit me a bit more (according to my husband and daughter).
Just wanted you to know the back story on my new, fresh look. Sometimes less words is more. And color always trumps words!
Thank you, Samm! What a lovely, lovely gift.
