Stitch Journeys

Join me on my Stitch Journey as I explore art and life.

Just for Fun

The second piece I finished this past weekend is the extreme opposite of the piece, Connections, which I posted yesterday. They both feature hand stitching but they are just about polar opposites on the quilting globe. This quilt started with a challenge at my local Modern Quilt Guild. We were given a charm pack of Kona cotton solid colors and we were allowed to add only one other fabric. I chose white...not in my normal color palette! I used a piecing technique that I call stitch and whack and I didn't put any time into planning color placement. It was nothing but complete fun to create.

I quilted it in a big stitch using perle cotton in a rainbow of colors. For the moment it is a cheerful addition to the walls of my studio but it may come down to become a cuddle quilt. Even on the dreariest days of winter this quilt would cheer you up.
