This project came out of a fascination that I developed a few weeks ago with the blog Daintytime, a creation by Sherri Lynn Wood. Her Mod Mood Quilt Along had attracted my attention in the past, but I finally got around to trying it. I actually didn't do the whole mood part of the quilt along. I just went with the colors that appealed to me at the time. This is the first project in this series. I have some other wedges and waves in blues and greens that I may do something with some day.
The piecing was fun. Doing all the wedges was really fun. Putting the curved pieces together, not as much fun. I did do hand applique on some of the really curvy parts and had to really work to get the corners filled in with one small piece of black fabric that has a very slight batik pattern.
Quilting it turned out to be fun too. I know my quilting isn't perfect, but when it's dense like this the imperfections don't show as much. I did a black facing to finish it off and have already put on the sleeve and label. I find deadlines very motivating, don't you? It is now within 100 days of the quilt show and I still have a lot I'd like to accomplish.
This piece is hard to photograph well in my studio. Most of the photos here are pretty good for showing the colors though.
This last one is a bit dull, but shows the whole quilt. I decided to have the top curves go off the edge of the quilt. It started to look like a cityscape to me. A city cradled in the bottom curves. I am debating on whether to offer this one for sale at the show.
