Val @ Purple Boots and Pigtails is creating a Kona quilt for the Maritime Modern Quilt Guild quilt show at the Nova Scotia Fibre Arts Festival.
The instructions were to create a block using the Kona colour of your choice, spelling out the name of that colour. I decided to use Torch, with Deep Blue as the background.
The original plan was to create the word using improv piecing, but I was having difficulty picturing how to make an R. Then I found a link for making letters -- Temecula Quilt Company.
It was fun to make the letters.
I made the background a bit big in case Val has to trim it down to fit in the quilt.
This was a welcome and fun distraction from all the quilt tops waiting to be quilted. It's back to the WIP list tomorrow. One is already on the frame. Two are waiting in line. I need to get backings organized for two more. Oh my...I have a lot of quilting to do.
