Echo Stars, Free Motion Quilting

Good Morning, Quilters!

In keeping with our Star theme this month, I found this AMAZING video of Garip Ay-A Turkish artist, recreating Van Gogh’s Starry Night in one of the oldest Turkish traditions of painting on water.

Internal Consistency–Teacups and Quilts

Tea Cup Quilt, Machine Quilting, Lori Kennedy

Good Morning, Quilters!

I laughed out loud this morning as I poured myself a cup of coffee in my favorite tea-cup and prepared to photograph my quilt…

Did my favorite tea-cup influence me as I chose the fabrics for this quilt?

Or is it an example of internal consistency--we have favorite colors and designs that resonate with us?

LOLOL–I just noticed that I am wearing a sweater in this same shade of green!

THE GREEN TEA CUP QUILT

This little quilt was made from an orphan block.

I kept the quilting in the center very simple–quilting on very patterned fabric does not show as much…

I added Grid Pop in the corners and Double Loop Vine and Straight Line Quilting in the border.

I did not quilt the light green border so it would stand out or “pop”.  (The areas with less quilting are more noticeable.)

What about YOU?  Do you exhibit internal consistency?  Are your quilts, clothes, teacups, flowers the same color?

We’d LOVE to hear!

Happy Colorful Quilting!
