This is currently on the wall. This will one of my entries for the NY Mod Quilt Guild DWR Contest. I am using Cherrywood Hand Dyed Fabric - the Renaissance colorway with a pop of green on a honey background. So far the arcs are only basted on - they will be hand appliqued.
Did you notice the two different greens? I tried out 3 greens and decided on the lightest one. Made 6 large square junctions and cut 6 of the 11 small junction rectangles. And they just didn't look right, so I left them there and looked at them and ignored them and looked at them and still couldn't decide. I replaced the center square with the mid shade and looked at it some more. Then I had my DH look at them to see which he liked better - he was unusually noncommittal - WHAT?!! I need help here, Man!
But late Thursday night as I headed downstairs without turning on a light, there was enough light from upstairs to remove the color so I could see the value. And the light green lost - it just total washed out into the background. So today I am cutting out the new medium green junction pieces. We are visiting with friends tonight so I might just get some actual sewing on the arcs done.
You might ask why I didn't start the new green pieces yesterday - because I went to a Quilt Show!! The Northwest Suburban Quilters Guild held their biennial show yesterday & today. What a nice show! They had over 300 quilts hanging, with 6 different categories for competition. In addition to the 26 vendors, the Guild had old magazines, books, patterns and of course, fabric for sale.
And then we finally have a kitchen that is 95% done!!
DH finished the flooring, we moved the appliances back into their places, and installed the new kitchen table set. All that's left is the shelves and outlets & outlet covers. WOOHOOO!!! And that's Zappa in the bottom picture, along with the cats favorite toy - brown paper bags.
