I was plugging along and sticking to the list.
I even pulled a skeleton from the closet after seeing Amber’s quilt here.
I’m not sure about this variation of the value quilt yet, but I will just keep adding rows and columns.
It’s trickier to work the values when you are using just scraps which include larger prints that hold light, medium and darks. The proportion of light on dark is also small, or in this case it is really a load of mediums which creates less definition. There are a few areas I wish I would have changed, but that’s quilting for ya.
I think I would go opposite next time, lighter with the squares next time and darker with the diamonds. This would work well with warm and cool thing too.
Then I started to diverge from the list after my triangle block class last week. I thought to add an outline to the triangles.
We’ll see if I can actually get the white to merge like that, but that’s the plan. I’m going to try to finish up the background on the other side today.
Then there’s this
mess colorful charm quilt I’ve been cutting cutting cutting some favorite fabrics for. I needed a project that was simple, fresh and bright to go with my new duvet cover.
The only problem was it led me to purchasing more fabric. Why does that always happen?
This is still hanging too, but I’m thinking of chevroning it. Not sure if that is a word.
Then there’s all that flea market fancy I cut up AND a sunburst that’s been developing.
The cherry on the cake? I got a job.
Yup, Katie’s going back to her career in natural foods. I’ve so enjoyed the past 7 years at home.
Gotta go sew! If you want to join me tonight I have space in my invisible zipper pillow class.
