I'm not a purple person, but I've been intrigued by the way Pantone has combined its 2014 Color of the Year, Radiant Orchid, with brighter pink and berry hues.
The 24" heart block that I used in this quilt is the result of my desire to use the Color of the Year and to revisit the piecing design I used on the back of my Neon Honey Quilt
I don't like to get into too much personal stuff here, but let me just say that 2013 could not be over soon enough. I'm so happy that it's a brand new year!
In lieu of the standard mosaic with a shot of every project, I picked a few of my favorites. In case you missed them the first time, I'm including links to the original posts.
Honey in Space
This is a version of the Honey quilt from Modern Patchwork that I made just so I could have a new quilt in the show at QuiltCon. It came with me to Austin and has been traveling ever since. These photos were taken in a bank plaza across the street from my hotel minutes before I had to hand it over for the show. (Thanks again, Alissa, for your help with that!)
I started this one a while ago and finally managed to get it quilted and bound!
This is part of a series of posts about the quilts from Modern Patchwork. I'm highlighting a different quilt each month, and will be remaking each of the book quilts in some way. This month, I made a neon version of the Honey Quilt. You can see my earlier post about it here.
I had all kinds of plans for photographing this finished quilt, some of which may have involved a black light, but I ended up finishing it just in time to meet my shipping deadline, so I had to settle for a quick photo shoot complete with a lot of dead leaves. (Why all the dead leaves at this time of year?!)
