This month, I started Sharon’s Encrusted Crazy Quilt class on Joggles and decided to use June’s TIFC colors for my block.
I thoroughly enjoyed going through color variations at Color Wizard http://www.colorsontheweb.com/colorwizard.asp#wizard and selected complimentary versions of some of the colors for my block:
The rich, dark, saturated shades are my favorites, and I thoroughly enjoyed selecting them for this block with a few lights added for some contrast. The upper left corner is a black cotton fabric with gold metallic speckles on it, and the long piece under it has some black netting with gold stitching attached to a variegated cream fabric.
My collection of fancy fabrics is gradually increasing and I was able to use some shiny navy acetate, and a dressy lining fabric – the aqua center triangle – with a silk tie remnant next to it, and a diagonal multi colored silk piece towards the bottom. It was hand dyed, discharged and overdyed by Jeanne Beck. http://www.jeannebeck.com/
The gold piece is a tone on tone tapestry with a piece of dark brown lace angled over the edge. Unfortunately , the tapestry threadwork doesn’t show up well in this photo. All the rest of the fabric is quilting type cottons.
I’m really looking forward to starting Lesson 2 this weekend, and finding out what the TIFC will be for July.
