Mighty Lucky Quilting Club – March

20160317_1301302.jpg.jpeg

I have not forgotten the March challenge for the Mighty Lucky Quilting Club! This month just did not sing to me. I have had some larger scraps laying out since March 1…and playing with them. As I understand it from Rossie Hutchinson, this is about learning colors…contrasting, complementary, etc. Also about color values and hues. It is a good lesson and as with all quilting, it still surprises me how much impact there is with using photos. You can see so much that just does not show up when you simply look at something.

I have so much fabric on hand, I was not ready to go buy more, so I decided to play with this using scraps I have. This would help me with the process she is teaching. So, I am posting the final selection (so far) after culling out several pieces. I am still not sure that the “wrong” color, another thing we are supposed to selectΒ and the name of this challenge, is what I like. I picked the green…it may not be “wrong” enough for this lesson.

I am not sure these pieces will actually turn into anything this month. I have to just hang with them and see. Purple is not really my color, so I would have to figure out something that works…maybe into the Etsy shop. That little square you see in the foreground…I threw that in at the last minute as a different addition…it has the colors. What do you think?

If I do go any further with this March lesson, I will post an update. What are you working on?

  1. Fabric is so beautiful, I like to take it all in. 🌷

  2. I think the soft purples and white would make such a soothing, peaceful-looking quilt. The pice in the foreground does have possibilities, but I think it would disturb the “Zen”. If I were picking, I wouldn’t include the three on the right or the green. But then, I’ve never made a quilt!

    • Me either…that is why I am not currently doing anything further with it. The lesson is called “WRONG COLOR”…thus the choices. Thanks for the comment!
