Time for something fresh. New. Fast. I'm feeling the need, the need for Speed!
Inspired by this quilt and this quilt, I took a jelly roll of the New Bright Palette by Kona, paired each strip with a Kona Charcoal strip and then cut the Charcoal strips at somewhat varying lengths. If I just used the jelly roll, the quilt top would have been 82 inches long. I decided to add four more colours though so that the top would finish at 90" long and could handle the quilting without shrinking it too much.
As the strips got sewn together, I kept thinking that it looked like a creek, a rainbow creek more specifically.
The top's not quite together yet, but I'm already loving the rainbow progression.
I'm also working on my photography skills. I'm taking the Shoot It: Product Photography Class on Craftsy class, as well as reading Maria Elkins' tutorial and the Shoot That Quilt! site. I'm trying to get the whites in my quilts to look white, the reds and oranges to stop looking over saturated and the quilting to show. Not asking much, am I?
Below is one of my mistake shots, which I think looks kind of cool. Hope I can figure out how to do it on purpose. LOL!
