Sadly, a number of my earliest projects are still UFOs. But there is one completed early project I am proud to show.
Honeycomb Waffle class with Sara Nephew at the Indiana Heritage Quilt Show in 2003. Not sure exactly why I selected the class OR the colors, but my quilting life changed at that point.
|Ode to Orange|
The Colors: I thought I hated orange, but having worked on a charity quilt with orange in it, I found my attention drawn to orange when fabric shopping. I had accumulated a collection of orange FQs (the medium). I also had a collection of dark blue FQs, the complement of orange. And I happened to have yardage of the light floral with both orange and blue in it to be the constant.
The Plan: Because I had used a variety of fabrics, it took a while to find a pleasant arrangement. I decided to put the lighter oranges in the middle to create a glow.
The Gift: I gave it to Son-2 and DIL where it has been used (very well) in their family room ever since.
The Prize: Third place ribbon at the Tennessee State Fair in the small/lap quilt category!
Linking up with Krista Quilts for Throwback Thursday.
