Lava Flowers


This is my result for the color palette that Kristin chose for our Twelve by Twelve challenge this round. The color palette was red, orange, black, chartreuse, and two shades of gray. I found this palette to be a challenge and I thought about what to create for almost the entire two-month period. Last week I decided on a scene from my own little fantasy world. See more on my quilt and eleven other quilts made with this color palette over on the Twelve by Twelve blog.

  3. Delightful design, fabric prints, colors, quilting. Makes me feel like I am in Hawaii. Wait. I am in Hawaii. So why isn't this quilt here too (and you also).

    Aloha,

  8. Very different colors, but still you. It came out grat. I really like the way it looks like they could be growing out of the volcano's lava rock. The promise of regrowth....

  13. Funny enough, little flowers and plants really do grow out of the lava rock. So good call!

    The 12" x 12" pieces look great. I knew your piece was your piece!
