Here's my basket-a-day. I've noticed I need to add more lights to the quilt, so I pulled a light peach for the background - really it's a flesh tone. I was having so much fun....
I made two more! Both of these have that wonderful Kaffe pencil print background.
And the group shot! Every day I rearrange the blocks a bit on the design wall, trying to balance the color and value. I can see now that I need to do more rearranging. I can't tell you how helpful it is when making a quilt to take a photograph and look at it on the computer. You can see much more this way than just standing back and looking.
Do you see what else I added? I placed a couple of sold blocks at the bottom, along with a striped filler triangle. Trying to figure out the edges of the quilt. When Alex Anderson made a quilt like this, she used nine-patches around the outside edge. I'll stare at it awhile longer before I decide.
I'm still working on the appliqué of hexies! LOTS and LOTS of hexies!
Tonight I'm going to our local guild's Christmas party....at Flavin Glover's house! I hear she decorated with her quilts - can't wait! Full report tomorrow.
I am a wife, mother to two daughters, an avid art quilter, cooking contest entrant, and dog lover. My book, FABRIC PHOTO PLAY, AQS, 2005, demonstrates my original technique for making portrait quilts. My second book (with Peggy Rhodes), Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts was recently released.
