Eviddently new pages are 'static' and can't be added to (at least not without some tricky fiddlery) so i won't be posting to this page but to my home page.
March is Orange.
I'm having a go at adding pages, hope it works.
Since I've joined a few challenges I thought I'd do a separate page for each to make it easier for followers to find each entry if they want to follow things thru.
What a happy colour. When I heard orange was the colour for March it reminded me of the batik quilt I started 18 months ago when we got home from a trip to Canada which included an Alaskan cruise.
I bought the fabrics from a number of shops on our travels, the first couple from a tiny craft shop in Pemberton, British Columbia, small shop but lots of different craft supplies and really nice patchwork fabrics.
I came up with a design that I thought would suit while still leaving the animal prints as large as possible because they're so lovely, and I balanced them with the leaves, a block I hadn't done before.
The important thing would be the sashing fabric, and that I found at the end of our trip in a lovely quilt shop in Arlington WA called The Quilt Maker's Shop, perfect fabric, sadly tho I didn't buy quite enough for the inner borders to match the sashing however I think we've found one that works in my daughter's stash.
You can see the extra fabric at the bottom of the first picture and the 3rd picture, I think I'm very lucky to find something that's so close.
Another project . . .
FEBRUARY . . . PURPLE . . .
I got busy and missed posting this so I'll sneak it on here.
Once again the colour choice brought to mind a UFO and so I got out a gorgeous purple Asian quilt that I'd made at least 4 years ago and hadn't finished the binding, I put this quilt on another post but here it is for Rainbow Scrappy.
I'd forgotten also how big it is, it's almost a queen bed topper, just doesn't cover the pillows. Purple is such a lovely colour and I wear it a lot but I don't use it in my quilts very often, looking at this quilt might just make me use it more.
