Show & Tell Tuesday
I have two quilts to share today.
Kaleidoscope of Kolor
I made Kaleidoscope of Kolor in 2010. I used a black background and Shadow Play fabrics by Maywood Studios in Jewel tones.
The completed quilt measures 96" x 100". This pattern is by Thea D. Jirak of Quilting Delights.
Using black as a background color was new to me. I also used Quilter's Dream black batting. I am very happy with the finished quilt.
The next quilt I will share is only the second quilt I ever made. It is a simple 9 patch that measures 37" x 49". I made this quilt in 2007 right after I made the same quilt in shades of blue.
I chose the colors of burgundy and hunter green to match my family room.
I love to look back at some of these first quilts to see how far I have come and how much I have learned. I am fortunate to have taken many classes from some wonderful teachers. I am especially grateful to my first teacher, Pat O'Brien of Pat's Custom Crafts. Pat was the first teacher to infect me with "Quilt Pox" and I will be forever grateful.
Next week I will share the gift I made for my DMIL for Mother's Day and a few other quilts I've made over the years.
Until Next Time.....Happy Stitching!!!
