fab little quilt swap

I'm taking part in the fab little quilt swap over at flickr and I've been stalking my secret partner and thinking about what to make - the other day I saw a diamond block that I thought would make a great little quilt so yesterday I got the coloured pencils out and came up with this.

I'd put a bit of a fabric bundle together but its really hard to imagine these fabrics when the drawing is done in all solids !  my partner likes purples, blues and greens.

then tonight when I got home I thought about another colour scheme - one I like a bit more - as my partner said she has an aqua and white sewing room.

but this time I did the mock up in EQ7 - amazingly it didn't take me that long and a few of the fabrics in my bundle were in the stash CD that I have so I was able to use actual fabric samples as well - pretty happy with how this turned out - can't wait to learn more about this program.

I put these photos up on flickr and my partner left positive comments about both so that's made it even harder - decisions, decisions !

I'll have to actually decide and start soon as it needs to be sent off in mid September :)

so which one would you prefer ?


thanks so much for visiting and leaving a comment ♥
