June’s TIFC Completed

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.
