2022: 15 Minutes to Stitch Week 11


I took the coloring chart for the Aunt Daisy quilt and added colored in the blocks, using a different color for each kind of block. As you know, my version, Jazzy Blues, is made with blues. The program I was using does not have a lot of choices for colors, so instead of different shades of blue, I just added different colors that might be the same value. Then I tiled it so I could see what it would look in the quilt. The different colors just exaggerate the effects the fabric will make on the quilt.

In my last post, I was worried that using dark colors for the flying geese and the hourglass blocks, I would create dark vertical and horizontal lines. As you can see in this picture, yes it does do that, but it doesn't take away the circular design, so I will just continue to use a different fabric for each block and hope for the best. The other thing I learned about this I can add yellow if I run out of blue fabric, and maybe even if I don't.

So many possibilities. I colored these pretty quickly as you can tell and didn't check the original pattern so I think some of lights / darks are reversed.


2022: 15 Minutes to Stitch Week 11

I didn't get a lot of sewing time this week, but I did manage to add some colors to the color chart as you can see above. I also sewed the inner border for the Olympics quilt on. There is still a lot of quilting left to do.

It's always fun to see how changing the tone and color change what stands out in a quilt. Hopefully life will calm down a bit and you can work in more than just your 15 minutes.

Wow. What an interesting pattern that changes with the color combinations. It's going to be a lot of work but very worth it!
