Here is my latest two-color gradation. I'm calling it blueberry because I think I would maybe see some of these colors in a bunch of blueberries. I used brilliant blue and lilac to create this gradation. It is a very subtle gradation, I imagine because the two colors are close together on the color wheel.

I decided I should document my two-color gradations somehow. I'm hoping that my friend, Vicki, will be proud of me for recording my efforts, although they are somewhat simplistic. Vicki??? How am I doing here? Is there hope for me?

I've been working on a mixed-media quilt this weekend that I am hoping to finish within the next day or two so that I can get some photos of it and submit it to an upcoming quilt show. The deadline for submissions is June 28 (deadline has been extended one week). The show is Blurred Boundaries and you can read all about it here.

I need to come up with a name/title for the quilt too. I always have such a difficult time naming quilts.


  1. Oh for crying out loud, how is it that your darned chart looks like a piece of art too?! LOL!

    I'm so very proud that I'm wiping away a tear right now. snif.

  2. lol! before I even got to scroll down to see your Vicki reference I was thinking "oh gosh, we've got another Vicki on our hands"!

  3. I'm sure that what Sue really meant was "Thank goodness, we have another Vicki here because you just can't have too many Vickis!"

  4. Yes, Vicki, I'm pretty sure you are right. I'm betting Sue just hit the wrong key.

  5. Gee, I hardly know you, and I'm proud of you for charting your results.

    Keeping records can be such a pain.

  6. um yea yea, that's what I meant....

  7. Yes, yes, yes! I love all the blue! Yes!

    And I absolutely love the blue piece you did with the dye-na-flow in your previous post! Exquisite!


I enjoy getting your comments. Thanks so much for leaving one.
