As soon as I finished the purple and blue “Violet Sashiko” quilt (or probably even before I was done), I knew I wanted to make another in a different colorway! It was so much fun to make and I could just see the possibilities before me.

So here is the next version!

With yo yos and an appliqué instead of folded flowers, it’s a little different, but still alot of fun, I think!

Here was the first version, in case you missed it.

I’m working on writing the pattern for it. I hope to share it with you soon!!

Violets

July 9th, 2011 | Posted by Emma in Quilting | Uncategorized - (0 Comments)

My violets are constantly multiplying…a chore when they start filling up their pots and need to be divided…

A really messy job Tiny pot from a garage sale Pot that I painted
Pot that Brennan painted! Another pot I painted Beautiful violets!

All those violets were an inspiration to my next art quilt/challenge project. The challenge is from my small group to use exclusively solid colored fabrics in a project. A tough one for all of us, since we love our prints so much! I keep getting tempted to look for some bridging floral print, but I’m resisting the urge and keeping this one simple. I hope it will be elegant in its simplicity…not boring!

I do love the way the solids show off the folding technique!

This was just a sneak peek, finished project yet to come!
