The colors for this week are coral, teal, and a splash of bright white.
I had a coral fabric to use, but I had to dye a teal. None of the ones that I had were quite the right color. I love dyeing fabric all different colors so that I have a stash of fabrics to use when I want to make some textile art. I also dyed a piece going for a pinker coral. I added a little too much pink for it to work, but I still have the pretty fabric for something else.
After I got my fabric ready, I put the two pieces of fabric together with a piece of stabilizer in the middle. Then I free motion stitched flowers using a zig zag stitch. I cut the flowers out and stitched them to my teal quilt block with some white perle cotton thread. I love adding dimensional elements to my quilts.
I think that all the quilt blocks will look wonderful turned into a quilt at the end. It will really come to life when I add the stitching to the backgrounds. I hope you enjoy my creative process. Have a good week,
