Sugar and Spice

The answer to "What's Girly" that I asked myself after finishing Violette's name panel was "Sugar and Spice, Everything Nice." I started with violets, and rose colored fabrics for "Sugar", and used a light blue for "and" because I wanted it to be very subtle.

I wanted the letters in the word "Spice" to be bright and bold."

The word "Everything," of course, had to be made from colors of the rainbow.

I made the word "Nice," and started playing around with the layout. I had to bend the word "Everything" to make it fit on the top of the bed, but also to mimic the arched shape of a rainbow.
Then I decided to replace the dot on the "i" with a little sun.By this time I had decided to make the quilt big enough for a twin sized bed, so I had a lot of room to work, but also a lot of space to fill.

I needed some "stuff", so I made these flowers, using this tutorial from House of Krom.And of course, I needed hearts.

stay tuned...
