|Kona cotton solid "Caribbean"|
LazyGalQuilting. Fantastic quilt and really fun to make - freestyle! My friends thought I was nuts while I was working on this at retreat, but that's a pretty normal reaction to whatever I'm working on so I'm o.k. with it...;)
Working on Rumspringa was my first real concerted effort to use only solids. I find that I am drawn to a lot of modern and Amish-style quilts but I really love fabric and I'm apparently a print-a-holic. I find it very hard to have any restraint and minimalism is just not in my nature. So my challenge is to find a place somewhere in the middle.
My compulsions run deep...I went on to use a whole lot of prints and a teensy bit more of Caribbean Blue in this quilt and some of you have asked about this crazy color...
