Pauline ask if I could make a few small whole quilts for her that matched this photo.
She sent a bit of blue fabric with specific measurements that she needed. 2 - 11 x 18" and 3 - 8" squares.
This is what she got. The first one I did in the more traditional color on color but was disappointed the the blue on blue just disappeared. I had to 'go bold or go home' as the saying says.
You can hardly see the butterfly pattern in the top and as I used a black backing (and black batting) the blue came out with a little more detail. Now for the gold!!
|Sorry for the camera color way to much light.|
It was fun to draw out the basic design and then play with patterns in-between.

I decided not to fill in the empty spaces, which is a little untraditional but I really liked the look. Thought it showed off the design and not overpower the overall piece.
It was a fun project and I think I'd like to make a bigger one, maybe with a medallion or a mariners compass for the theme.
WOW! Amazing, love what you do!ReplyDelete
