I Can't Decide

Here is the pile of fabrics I used to create my latest Twelve by Twelve quilt. The color theme this round was called Eggplant and the three colors included in the palette are purple, emerald and wine.

I've now completed two, yes I said two, quilts for this theme and I can't say I'm over the moon about either of them. I found this color palette very difficult to work with. All three colors are dark values and while we have no restrictions on using other colors (like a light color) I still felt somewhat restricted. So now I need to choose which quilt I'll officially submit to the challenge, which will be revealed on January 12.

In other quilty projects... Here is something I started before Christmas and just haven't gotten back to. I was inspired by the wholecloth painted quilts that Judy Coates Perez creates and I had a lazy day one day before Christmas (imagine that), and purchased her instant download DVD on this technique.

You might recognize this image, I shared it with you at Christmas.
