Bet you didn't expect this...................

...........did you?
I need something easy, quick and colourful ~ does this fit the bill?

Seriously, I just wanted something easy to make that I could practice my machine quilting on. Nights are taken up with the CWBQ applique and I thought it was time to push a few more boundaries!!

This is definitely out of my comfort zone. I've always admired the Kaffe Fassett range of fabrics and patterns but deep down I'm an 'earthy' type girl. I love muted colours, muddy blues and greens. I do also love pale pinks, greens and creams.

So, this is a new adventure for me. I know He Who Works will not like it! Oh no, not one little bit, but then he has been known to surprise me once or twice in nearly 40 years, we shall see!!

Ooh, I like it! I normally wouldn't go for bright colour either but they definitely work in this instance. Good luck practicing your machine quilting!

Rumi said...

It will be lovely! You might just adore it when it's done. If not, what a great gift it would be for a bright loving friend!

Sweet P said...

Oooooo . . . fun colors. And what a great idea to make a project for practicing quilting.

Francien said...

Yes i did!!...for practice only???its gonna be a wunderful project knowing you a bit now...
Oh what a lovely fabric that is...i have a Kaffe Fassett book about his quilts and one of his mosaics and i read them over and over again...there are so many beautiful pictures from several quilts/mosaics in it...and so colorfull that i sometimes think how could you put those together?!... but they work in his projects and the mosaics too...i too also grab the earthy colors and almost all shades of blue because they are my favorite...but a lovely bright colored quilt in between lifts up the mood...and HHW will get over it...mine always does...untill now...lol...
xxx Francien.

What can I say that hasn't been said already? You're a clever girl and you make beautiful things. I am sure you are up to the challenge and will make something amazingly creative from it!
Oh...I suppose we'll be old fashioned and go by the usual way (Car), but how exciting it'd be to "ride a volcano" eh!
Roll on Monday!

Now where did I leave my sunglasses..... Very pretty. I'm sure there are plenty of bloggers out there that have quilts they could send you to practice on. :-)

Something different is good every now and then. The fabric is beautiful.

I ordered some background fabric for my CWBQ last week. Hope it arrives this week.
