During the holidays I tried to work on En Provence along with everyone else but you know how it goes. My progress has been exceedingly slow and I was having a few issues with my color choice, which were the same as Bonnie's, and I realized I don't like yellow and green together--crazy! Now if it is an appliqued flower or something along those lines I am just fine with it but for some reason in a pieced quilt it doesn't suit me.
After much thought and shuffling of fabrics I realized I needed to make En Provence my own and use the colors that work for me. I swapped yellow for turquoise/aqua/teal and the green is now lime or some bright variation. I am so happy with the results. The colors remind me of Easy Street which I just love!
Here is a close up of my favorite part so far. Hello Kitty!
I have decided to use my Eiffel Tower black and white fabric along with my magenta as a constant. I know it isn't the south of France but I do love Paris and I have to include it.
