Marny here...the Des Moines Modern Quilt Group is having a challenge. It is due in a few weeks, but I won't be able to attend that meeting so sharing my process and (hopefully) the end product here in a series of blogposts will help me conquer the test!
|A display of Cotton + Steel Fabrics caught my eye on a |
trip to the local quilt shop (the Quilting Connection).
|Melody Miller's Fruit Dots has the |
intense coral and fushia pinks in the challenge.
|Rashida Coleman-Hale's "Macrame" in the toned (dare I say) mauve |
is punctuated with the teal, pink and gold of the challenge.
|Another of Rashida's fabrics includes accents |
of each of the challenge fabrics and more.
|Testing how lines work against the prints and |
how the areas of prints might react to one another.
|Here is the background. I love the lines and tiny dots, but it is directional. I'm still deciding if I'll cut it width or length of fabric. This is part of the P & B Textiles Bear Essentials 3 collection, but I couldn't find the creamy white colorway I'm using on their website.|
|And I just happen to have the perfect bit of wall waiting for a quilt!|
