My hubby thought it was too purple and encouraged me to do it in batiks as he thought it would sell more patterns. Now who am I to argue when the man tells me to shop for fabric? So the batik version got finished first.
But as I was choosing the fabrics from my stash for the original colourway, I couldn't help but think of the spicy colours you might find in an outdoor market in say, Marrakech.
I absolutely love bright, bold and yes, some would spicy colours!
I built my palette for this quilt around this top fabric. It's from the Kaffe Fassette Collective by designer Brandon Mably and is called Pom Pom Dahlia.
On the quilt label you might read "Colours of Marrakech" but the pattern is still Waltz Around the World.
I'm now deciding on the quilting so I will stare at it for awhile and let the quilt speak to me.
