A Third WIP…Chambray and Shot Cottons
And here we are with yet another quilt that started out quick and dirty and is now just sitting on my cutting table. I look at it often since I adore these solids so much. There are a couple of kona solids in this, but mostly these fabrics are Carolina Chambrays and Kaffe Fassett’s shot cottons which both are given more depth of color by being cross woven in two different colors. I love how this two color woven makes for a more dimensional solid; rich and even glimmering at times.
I started this quilt inspired by the color palette that’s in a decorative screen in my bedroom. I thought a coordinating throw quilt would look nice next to it. I started pulling solids out from my stash and this is what evolved. Kona cottons in curry, woodrose and olive, shot cottons in moss, raspberry and spruce, and one Carolina Chambray in teal are what make up most of the colors in this piece.
This is just another one of the many projects I am committed to finishing in 2011 and to becoming a finisher and not just a starter of quilts.
