I loved the comments and one from Wanda at Exuberant Color was that purple is a neutral and I should have a good supply in my stash of it. Such an enabling comment, so I listened to the teacher and quickly ordered more purples!
It is hard to capture the glow in a watercolor quilt. The camera eye focuses on the light and I never know if the rest of the quilt will be the right color. So I took a series of shots in different light to see how it affects it.
Here is a shot inside the house with good light streaming in.
Next I went to the front porch. Bight light behind me, and the wall hanging in shaded area. The purple is okay but the border is washed out.
Next to the back porch area with softer shade and no bright direct light. The colors are better.
Finally, back inside and I threw it on the floor in the office.......nice! Indirect light that is not too bright gives a glow and still allows the colors to show.
I called this one Quiet
Time. Just finding a silent spot to rest and reflect is difficult. So viewing this one causes me to reflect a little bit and calms my spirit. Finished size is 23'' by 30''. Quilted with a meandering stitch in the center and open swirls in the border.
I am pinning my Let's Book It project today, and have a circle to do. If you haven't viewed this month's linky for the circles, here it is. There are some great ideas and circles to see. Lots of creative spirit showing there. Or check out my Pinterest board on Quilty 365 circle ideas. Happy stitching!
