How ART You
What is a world without color? There is just something about a certain pop of color that elevates an item. I wasn't always interested in using solid fabrics, but the longer I experience the world of quilting the more I appreciate the power of simplicity. This bare wall was screaming out for adornment and I headed it's pleas with A Rainbow Trip Around The World wall hanging. The pattern exploded across my flickr stream last year, but laid dormant in the back of my brain until this challenge was put before me. You can find the pattern HERE by Bonnie Hunter.
A Rainbow Trip Around The World was quilted with an organic swirl pattern and measures 36" X 36." All of the fabric for the top was purchased 3 years ago for a Kona Amish Churn Block Swap, which I was not able to participate in, so I was not able to obtain the same matching black fabric in time for this post so it is presented without binding. A Beautiful rainbow Batik I bought when I was a mere 18 years old, was used for the backing which also does not fall under the Kona Solids description so I wasn't quite sure if I should share it, so please come back to view the backing on Thursday when I should have binding attached as well. I am slightly obsessed with rainbows so this wall hanging is selfishly all MINE! [edited 01/18/2014: The finished quilt can be view HERE]
MADE's Fiesta Skirt Pattern. I made this one for valentine's Day, though I may go back to make a another skirt specifically for Cinco De Mayo, which is big here in Dallas. I added a little extra room in the waist for growth and I chose to make the skirt width 4 X her waist for extra twirl. I have a petticoat in the works to make it extra full underneath.
Every girl needs a simple Navy skirt in her wardrobe I think; for Miss Z, I added the little lace on the bottom for a sweet touch. I made this simple skirt pattern up, the skirt is 2 X her waist and the skirt length goes to her mid-calf. You will be seeing more garment items for my marvelous daughter over this next quarter as she is transferring to size 4T before she is even Two years old!! I will be sprinting to catch up, let alone get a bit ahead of her growth spurts!
