White Chocolate & Violets


This little quilt is for the Take it Further Challenge for September, http://sharonb.wordpress.com/2008/09/01/september-take-it-further-challenge/ . I chose to do the color challenge rather than the concept. When I saw the colors I thought of white chocolate & violets, so hence the name of the quilt & this post. It measures 10" square. I am proud of the fact that I was able to get it square with no wobbly edges, it just looks off in the picture due to the angle I took the photo. Now my quilting, I do need to practice my swirls & spirals more but other than that I am pleased with it. It is a fused quilt on a hand painted background. All of the fused fabrics are either batiks or solid. I did buy some wooden beads for this quilt but have yet to figure out if I am going to use them or put them in the drawer. I am leaning towards the drawer at this point since I am not used to beading on abstract pieces.
Just a quick note: hockey season is starting soon so expect that other obsession of mine to pop up here on the blog.
