First of all I want to thank everyone who reached out to me after my last post. I was scared to post about what was going on with me personally but you all made me feel so loved and supported… thank you… you may have even made my mum tear up a bit.
Now onto the business at hand… quilts. Today I am sharing a recent Do Good Stitches finish. This one was a simple block that chose for the Bee… you can see directions on making it here…
This quilt top came together quickly, once I had received all the blocks from my fellow DGS peeps…
I want to use the palette I selected for this project again… but this time I want to just use the colors with no white…it is such a fresh color scheme and I want to really get the citron to pop.
On Pinteres I have a whole folder full of color schemes and I love taking inspiration for how other people put together palettes… particularly when I am having a color block (which is a quilters equivalent to writers block).
I also find it easy to point my fellow quilting bee mates in the direction of a color palette when setting a block for them to make…. and so far the results have been spot on.
I got a wonderful mix of colors back from my team and also a variety of tones… does anyone else use other peoples colour palettes?
I had fallen a little behind with my Do Good Stitches finishes so this quilt got an all over stipple… thanks to my darling friend Sam Hunter… and a Martha Stewart sheet for the back…
This quilt has already headed to the local PICU and is hopefully giving a warm Quilty hug to someone.
