fell this morning. I think the major weather split and went north of I-20 and south of us. Pity.
This is the “Jasmine” Challenge that was unveiled at the TQP LA ROMP several years ago. I dearly love stars, so it was a given that I would do stars, lol. I designed the blocks and setting strips to get the secondary design. It helped that I loved the fabrics. The piece I chose to work with has a black background with little pink/purple looking paisley designs. Very pretty fabric.
Then there was a vacation in Texas Hill Country with some good friends. We swapped Texas themed blocks. I don’t remember who did all the different blocks, but they all did a wonderful job and I love this quilt too. It’s in the living room for a quick coverup.
This year’s TQP challenge was real easy…we picked a number and put it in a database. My friend Denise matched the numbers to her color chart. We could only use that color and 1 other to make the quilt. My color was blue-green. I chose various shades of orange to go with the multiple shades of blue-green.
I don’t have the colors quite right with the editing, but you get the idea. I backed the quilt with koi fish fabric…and quilted it with rippling water. There’s a dream story behind the fish fabric that I won’t bore you with…but I think it worked well for this particular quilt.
