c&g quilt

In spite of the heat I managed to get all the quilting done on this big quilt. Here are two detail pictures of the designs I used:


And not only that I also dyed the fabric which I will be using for the poppies. I used tangerine, mixing red and mixing blue in all these fabrics:
To get these colors I used my color bible made during Carol Soderlund classes. Often I just play with the different colors, but now and then if I am after a specific color, I use those samples as reference guide.

I love your dyed fabrics. I hope to get some done soon myself. Not this week, though. It is going to be brutally hot.

LOVE the quilting designs and the fabrics for the poppies! I am glad to see the HQ16 is earning its keep these days! So glad you had that to work with instead of a regular machine! You might NEVER have gotten to come up for air!
