Quilt Testers In Action


Monday, December 12, 2011


Hi, everybun! I hope you all had productive weekends. I actually managed to finish the little quilt that I showed you in my last post over the weekend. This is for Three Creative Studios Color Palette Challenge, the November palette. Since it was November, I was thinking harvest. Here is the finished piece.

 I kept the thread sketching simple this time, just three more stalks of wheat, done in black.

I'm still not too sure about the rose/pink, but its starting to grow on me.It adds a sunset glow to the quilt, which I think works with theme. The "calico" look of the rose and of the light blue also play off the harvest theme.

Overall, I'm pleased with the result. The best part was thread sketching the wheat stalks. They were really fun to stitch once I got the rhythm down. I'm going to keep that design in mind for future products.

(Note: Anyone got any ideas as to why, when I misspelled rhythm, spell check suggested "Norsemen" as a substitute? I was only off by one letter!)

That is really lovely!

And you certainly have been a busy bee to get all that done.

The rose really sets off the blues and greens and the golden wheat. Perfect choice!
