I was browsing the internet and came across a challenge called Curves for Curated Quilts Magazine. The challenge is to create a small square quilt with curves and a defined palette of colors including burgundy, fuschia, moss green, teal, and spring green. White could also be included. Don't you just love this combination? I did so much I made a second quilt with the same colors....coming your way soon!
What to do? I went through my Island Batik fabrics digging for the right colors and found some of their white fabric as well. It's such fun to work with Island Batiks and I adore being an Ambassador for Island Batiks.
Then I doodled a bunch of little designs and eventually came up with one I liked. Here it is all appliqued down. Now to quilt it. I'll show you more about my design process for this on Friday.
I used my favorite batting, Hobbs. This quilt is with there new Tuscany Supreme Unbleached Cotton batting. It's nice and thick and gave a lot of definition to my piece.
I hope you get to quilt today!
You sure were able to come up with something quickly! I saw the call for entries to and haven't come up with anything for ideas. (Okay, maybe I'm not thinking that hard!) Anyway, I love this little mini!ReplyDelete
I really like the quilting that you chose. The batiks work perfectly for the them, well done.ReplyDelete
