Another small wall quilt, this time using solids and one of my favorites: Kaffe prints. I began by pulling and pairing fabrics. I set my camera to a grayscale setting which was very telling. A couple of my selections blended together, but to the naked eye they seemed fine. From experience I knew that those had to be eliminated. It’s a great tool in fabric color selection.
I drew paper pieced block patterns as I wanted each to be a little different and to have as crisp points as possible. Happy to say it was all a fun process!
The polka dot backing was perfect. For the quilting I didn’t want too much as it’s a small quilt, so I chose random circle quilting. You can be sure I’ll be doing that again sometime in the future!
I’m also back to hand applique and with cooler temps arriving here in the Piedmont, I’m enjoying doing so on my front porch. Here is my view:
The garden continues to delight. The onslaught of leaves will soon be following, but until then, I will soak in with joy all that surrounds me.
