Here is my interpretation of the 'low-volume' theme:
Of course I HAD to add some green, right!!? If you can see it, I added three lines of Aurifil green thread across the cushion at the base of the green triangles. I think of the triangles as trees. Wonky ones! I love wonky! The triangles were paper pieced from a pattern by Owen's Olivia. Clever stuff! Each white was a white on white print so those areas still had a low-volume effect. And guess who the recipient was? The swap mama herself -- Tiina! I hope she is enjoying her new cushion! Oh and I added a little ribbon tag to the side (I HAD to, right!!??):
So - which one did I receive? This gorgeous scrappy one called 'Pale and Interesting' by Wooden Spoon Rachel. I love every single fabric in this cushion - and there are 100 squares! It is like an I-Spy with strawberries, crabs, birds, eye glasses, chickens, houses, scissors, wheels, snails and more!!!! The quilting is amazing too - I do love straight lines and the grid is perfectly done [=jealous].
I am so lucky - thank you Rachel!! And thank you Tiina for choosing mine and being a great swap mama!
Round #8 has just been announced with deadline of 25th January 2014. Want to join in? Join the group and get sewing! The theme will be log cabin and text fabric. Woohoo - two more of my favourite things!! How will I interpret that one???
The winner of my 'For the Boys' blog hop giveaway is RHONDA D. I have emailed Rhonda about winning a bag of Christmas scraps. Thank you to everyone who stopped in and commented on the shaggy/frayed edge/rag time quilt! I love making these!
Also, I will be having another giveaway starting on the 21st November. This is the one organised by the Quilting Gallery - there is still time to register :) I am thinking I will have two prizes to give away!
Also a big thank you to the Quilters Newsletter who sent me 'More Take 5 Quilts' by Kathy Brown and five Quilting Treasures Mod fabrics. I am itching to start yet another quilt ;)
Hope you all have a great weekend.
