Personally I Like Purple and Green
Here's a sneak peak my next challenge piece. I'm finished!
Amazingly enough, just when Nikki has announced the eggplant/wine/emerald color palette for the next challenge, this is the quilt I am working on. I started it as a way to play with my very first screen prints from a printing session this summer, and it's far bigger than 12x12. Although now that I know the palette, maybe I'll work a bit more with these prints. Hmmmm. But anyway, as this is certainly not my usual color range, this seemed strangely synchronistic.
I asked Miss C what she thought of the piece in progress. She gazed at it thoughtfully. "Purple and green together make me feel nauseated," she said, "and those splotches in that fabric look a bit vomity so that doesn't help ... " She paused again, then added brightly, "But I like the shapes!"
It's always good to get an honest critique.
Undaunted, I am continuing with the machine quilting today.
