Yesterday at guild our speaker was Joyce Hughes. Her pathway into quilting was an interesting one. She wanted to make a Tshirt quilt for her daughter who was graduating from high school. She went from that to this beautiful Fairy Quilt.
There is a lot of detail and she uses a lot of thread painting to make these quilts come alive.
I am not a huge fan of embellishment but she used it very well and it enhanced the quilt and did not overwhelm it.
There are actual rhinestone jewels in the treasure box.
The one thing that I think draws you to her quilts is the use of a lot of color, it is very eye catching and wants to make you look even closer for the details.
So the other day I was reading and came across an article about colors we are drawn to.......I was surprised to say the least about the results. These are the top 5 colors that were voted on as favorites.
Seriously purple as number 2? I was very surprised I was expecting red or green. I didn't think that pink would be in the top 5 either. So let's have our own little poll. If you look to the top right of this post there is a place for you to vote for your favorite color. I see a few already went ahead and voted. Leave a comment and tell me what you think about purple being #2........
Aqua is added to mine because for right now it is my favorite color.
How about a giveaway too? I will randomly pick a name on Tuesday, April 15th. You can win 4 fat quarters in your favorite color......yes it can be purple!
Really? Purple #2???
The giveaway is now closed.
I also wanted to show you this cute fabric my friend Cheryl gave me. I have a fun idea that I want to make using this fabric. Hopefully this weekend.
Okay now go vote!
