Here is memory quilt #4. I actually did what I set out to do - make 4 different patterns.
What's really funny is that I thought I knew which one would be my favorite, but as I made each one, they all became special. My favorite changed four times!!
We'll see which one ends up in my house.....
Last year I was obsessed with making these bright leaves, it was my car project several times. When it was all said and done, I had over 400 and needed to think about what to make with them.
My Dahlia Revisited was the first project to use a bunch of them. Since I had to make more purple and green to make the colors work it didn't go very far in trying to use up my 400 plus leaves.
I needed another car project last month and decided to start a vase of flowers with bright blue stems to go with the bright leaves.
I knew I didn't want it formal like "Vintage Blooms" below, so it's quite modern I think :). I like the B&W vase with the colored leaves.
So instead of Baltimore Album like this.....
I got this! And did you notice there are no flowers - just leaves? They are not in their final places yet, but it's pretty close. The yellow dot for the background will work for this once I get another border around it to set it off.
I've started the applique but it's now become a lunch time project at work, so it might take a while.
And since this is the year of green and purple for me, I'm getting ready to start a new green and purple quilt. This time I'm adding black and white. I've drawn it out in EQ7 so we'll see how things go.
After the sadness lately, there's a lot of happy color therapy going on :).
Happy stitching today,
