Brown always makes me nervous. I am aesthetically scarred from having lived through the 1970s, when brown beige, and orange threatened to smother the world, and swirly carpets left you trembling in doorways, terrified to enter a room. Now, some fifty years later, the elephant fabric has made me face up to my fears. It called for shades of brown, turquoise and purple (another colour that had its glory days, was that the late 60s or early 70s?).
Now the top is finished, I love it. It has been added to my little pile of cradle quilt tops so I can start binge quilting in the next month or so. In the meantime, all the hard work I have been putting in to the allotment is paying off. All the potatoes are planted, the onions are doing nicely, there are some self-seeded leeks that are now in orderly rows, and the asparagus will be popping up soon. So while the weather stays dry and I am grubbing around and staring at shades of brown and green for hours, I am looking forward to my next colour matching exercise.
Here goes for Week 325:-
Many thanks to Kathy for linking up last time with her green HST quilt. If you haven't seen her blog post yet, nip over now and see more.
Remember, FMQ is FMQ, whether your machine was made last week, or it is older than your granny.
Here are the very easy and slightly elastic rules:-
1. Link up with any recent post, ideally from the last week but within the last month, which features a free motion quilting project, whether it is a work in progress or a finish.
2. Link back to this post in your own post.
3. Visit as many of the other participants as possible and say hello in the comments box.
