Luck was on my side, and my three colours played well together.
I decided to work with solids, and the closest Kona colours were: Niagara, Meringue, and School Bus.
As usual, I procrastinated until the last minute. I changed my mind far too many times as what to make. I finally made a decision, but this past Sunday, I still hadn't started and was doubting my choice.
So I did something wild and crazy. I chose a paper pieced pattern. Yes, you read that correctly. I, who does not like paper piecing, decided that was the way to go. I went with a Violet Craft pattern. You can find the pattern Forest Abstractions: Wild Carrot here.
I outlined the flower and stem and then stippled the background.
The pattern finishes 8 x 18 inches, but I added side borders to make it 13 x 18 inches.
Early next week, there will be online voting on our guild blog. I'll provide the link when it's available so you can see all the wonderful creations that were unveiled last night.
** Voting is now open for the Maritime Modern Quilt Guild Paint Chip Challenge. My paper pieced project is #16. Stop by to see all the wonderful creations and to vote for your favourite project (which I hope is mine ). Voting is open until September 24.
