{Late Post} Another swap


Last March-April, there was (mini) round robin swap in my facebook quilting group Desi Quilting.
My partner,Prabha, sent me this pretty star block in blue, green and yellow. 

I'm not sure how I will extend the block. Since this is the first time I do this kind of swap, it made me quite nervous :P

Especially after seeing what others have done in the group.

At that time, then I remember one of Rita's (of RPQ) quilt. She made medallion with black and white. so why not trying using the black and white border, I thought. Afterall black and white is neutral colors, right? 

but instead of pure white, I decided to use the polkadots and love how it turned out. 
now on to the next one.

The deadline for submitting was nearing and I still could not decide what to to. A lot of "audition" going on

This the time when understanding color theory in quilting  is very IMPORTANT. When you hit a wall, just open that color wheel and go from there.

I bought kindle version of Becky Goldsmith Book from Amazon
and love it. 


I just consult the color wheel, and decided what's best from my stash. 


here's the complete picture


I like the  overall look about it 
though I admit that I was using different weight of cotton there. It is one of the problem here in India, most cottons have different weight. 
it's very tricky, but hey..there's no rule in quilting rite?


That's all

Until then,

Happy Quilting
