Well, I've made it just in time. For those of you in some other time zone, I got this one in by 11:55 my time. Just in time!
I could justifiably say that I was sitting around waiting for paint to dry. I was, really. I painted these fabrics while teaching a Shiva Paintstik class this afternoon and needed the paint to dry for several hours before I could handle it. I guess I could have used some other fabrics for today's work, but I was really diggin' on these flowers and couldn't wait to quilt them.
I layered the red violet painted fabrics with layers of dark blue green batting and linen which I think are great counterpoints to the painted fabrics and I love the juxtaposition of the scale of the three big flowers with the scale of the texture in the other painted fabric. What I like the most about the whole thing is the subtle glow of the light pink paint inside the flowers.
As for quilting, the red violet is all quilted lightly whereas the greens are quilted quite heavily. All in all, I kinda like it.
