A thunderstorm was coming through and I can't afford to fry my machine by working during a storm!
My Spring 2019 (Ravelry) UFO Club list includes finishing a Quilted Thread Catcher for Denise.
My instructions for colors were as follows:
Cowboy colors, duh!
When I asked my friend to elaborate, the response was:
Browns, turquoise, tans, reds, hot colors, textures, ...
I'm using leftovers from THIS quilt that she made:
Denise chose some of my turquoise scraps (shown in the photo below) during our last Sew/Craft Friends-zy and I pulled additional coordinating fabrics from my stash, but checked in to see if I was headed in the right direction with these:
Obviously, I have taken a bit of a left turn from her original thoughts on the matter...
You know? Those browns, turquoise, tans, reds, hot colors, textures, ... Ugh! SEW not my thing.
After dinner, I went back up the studio to align my fabric selections more closely with Denise's hopes for her forthcoming "Joy Original" Quilted Thread Catcher. Even though she SAID, "Have fun with it, You know I'm gonna love anything!"
We'll see about that...
Here is where I went with her statement, noticeably less green:
I also added more turquoise and an another red to create a basket panel that should be pleasing to its recipient:
If nothing else, it's got texture! I'm hoping to be able to transform it into Denise's Quilted Thread Catcher before next weekend's Sew/Craft Friends-zy for the month of May.
Until next time...
