A Late Finish

Meant to finish this yesterday, but it didn't happen. This is my "tile" quilt for the Three Creative Studios August Color Palette Challenge. It was supposed to be abstract, with a thread sketch of corn. Instead, I ended up with a landscape, with a thread sketch of the younger daughter!  Not the greatest pictures here, because of light problems. I'll try and retake them sometime in the future.


For the first time ever, I didn't use all the colors. The final medium blue was going to be the binding, but then I decided to use yarn. I wanted it to look like sea weed (because that's what the kid was poking with her stick), but I'm not sure if it does. It may just be a mess.


The thread sketch was made from this photo, taken back in 2005, before she grew her hair long.


I love this picture, it shows her curiousity and playfullness. I think that comes across in the thread sketch, too, so overall I'm happy with this one. And it's time already to start the next one....

I think that the substitution shows your curiosity and playfulness and is far more interesting than the assigned task. The yarn is also a great touch!

You really captured her likeness and her curiosity with your thread sketch and I think the green yarn is perfect!
