MULTICOLOR FUN AND CHALLENGE
What a change this month. It’s not as simple as I thought to work out a good piece using multicolored fabrics. First of all, I can’t do a crayon this month. All the wax colors would mush together into muddy brown, not very exciting.
My project for this week was two Geese Migration blocks. But how do you make them noticeably different? My solution was grouping them by dark and strong versus lighter and paler. The starting point was a dark midnight blue with dull gold dots. That made the sky for the first group of geese, and strong, bright color mixes were easy to find.
As you can see, within that range I was able to grade the geese from light to dark.
The daylight block was trickier. I finally chose a sandy beach fabric for the triangles. Apparently the geese decided to take a break and relax in the sun. Here the squares are softer also.
I had a busy week otherwise, so all that I got done was my Summer quilt blocks 21 and 22. It’s getting more difficult to find combinations I haven’t used before. That’s where photo records come in handy. But Kaffe Fassett hasn’t let me down yet.
We still have very few flowers in bloom, so I’m happy to be working with all these fun multis. Can’t wait to see what all of you have come up with this week.
