Quilt

One day I wanted to see if I could do those skinny pieces that I'd seen others doing. I was going to just keep making the tiny strips but decided that they would be more effective, it they were in just a few places, so this it the result.

The marbled commercial fabric was the starting point. The machine quilting is curved lines to emphasize the pieced curves.

Thank you to everyone who commented on my yellow green quilt. When marbling fabric in S. California, we found that adding lime to almost every piece really added a punch-thus starting my love of what was a color I didn't use before.

Another color group that became a favorite showed up when I took a color class from Judy Warren at Asilomar. I picked yellow to work with, because it was such an uncomfortable color when you get to the shades. During the painting exercises, I fell in love with the tints and shades of yellow orange. It pays to keep an open mind.

Another beautiful example of your work Sandy. I do like the marbled fabric you've used, and the wavy quilting. I have always loved yellows, and was instantly drawn to your last quilt. I find I need to replace yellow dyes much more frequently than any other colour. You are constantly doing such beautiful work Sandy. I love coming here, and am so pleased you have a blog to share your creativity.
