The Last Fun

An idea is only an idea until you make it real. Sometimes it's a great idea, sometimes, not so much.

But you never know until you try. Here is the last BOB Fun for the Black Rules quilt.
This one is going to disappear for sure, and it was NOT my intention. Oh well! Live and learn. It's in the quilt.

Speaking of which:
It needs a bigger strip of black across the top. Again I have to apologize for the lousy picture. The quilt is positively stunning in real life, but taking photos in my sewing room at 10 PM at night of a black quilt is a recipe for mediocrity. When it stops raining, I'll take the quilt outside and get a really good photo. I promise.

My quilt Laughing Out Loud is due back from Chris by way of Julie today. Woo hoo!

Your black rules quilt is a great example for why artists play with the same design ideas in multiple pieces. It's stunning--mediocre photography or not.

What if you add some of the BOB from the final "hidden" FUN as the top strip where you mentioned needed a bit more fabric. Perhaps the similarity in print might hep "unhide" the FUN, even just a little.

And when the quilts are together, seeing the BOB funs will send viewers looking for the WOW funs ... even if they missed them on the first glance.

FABULOUS QUILT!!! (s!!!!!)

That is so pretty! I love the hidden funs too.

I like that the extra "fun" disappears. It's a fun find for the viewer and new owner. Just that little extra something, a mystery. Good Job!

Love the black on black fun-what a cool secondary element! It obviously wouldn't work for the primary "fun", but it's a really cool thing to discover when one looks a little closer. I'm going to keep this idea in mind. Love the new quilt, too! Great colors!
