The challenge for me this time was very much around finding some free time to make a quilt! My first thought was heartsease. My second thought was Johnny-jump-ups (same thing). Then, pansies. Eventually I moved on to irises. Finally I decided there would be no flowers in my quilt.
I sat.Stared around the room. Nothing. The problem, I thought, is that I really DON'T like violet and yellow together. Time to think more broadly about that purple...maybe lavender, maybe amethyst...
Wait! Up on the top shelf of the dresser! There are two little cups that I bought in a thrift shop a few weeks ago.I bought them because I love the colours together.
Here they are...
A whole heap of photos later, I had a tightly cropped image that I liked and some printed copies for a pattern.
And then, the quilt. Abstracted almost to obscurity :D and not as successful as I had hoped. Maybe next time.
