With deadlines met I've also got back to making my Wonky Stars for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge and will be linking up with Angela at So Scrappy for her weekly check-in. Angela's blog is wealth of pattern and project ideas based on using your scraps by colour. The link ups give you a chance to see what everyone else in blog-land is doing.
Now what about those deadlines? Here's one. This is a 12 x 12 piece for the Aotearoa Quilters yellow challenge. I had lots of ideas for yellow, but none that really formed into a plan. Then I found a pile of doilies with yellow embroidery and I figured I could do something with those. My favourite shirt provided the inspiration I needed. It is a really graphic print that makes great use of colour, and I love the way different designs flow into and across each other. I stamped and stencilled some background fabric, and found a graphic print, and a retro floral (a sheet) to add the different patterns. I quilted it in a variegated yellow, and then stitched in black, cutting across the yellow quilting.
I'll blog about the other deadline project another time. It will take a wee bit of explanation.
