My Lesson

Project Description

What are you most proud of? "Learn by doing" I learned a number of things that I need to do different next time. Yes, there will be a next time, I've already selected my "focus fabric" What advice would you give someone starting this project? Choose a focus fabric- one that calls out to you - for me that would be a multi-colored, bright print. Then choose your other fabrics by refering to the focus fabric. This helps the colors coordinate. Another thought - as you put your stack together you might want to alternate lights and darks.

What you will need

  • 100% cotton fat quarters

Q&A with dobielover

Carol Ann Waugh asked:
Personally, I LOVE the placement of the orange. The lines give it so much energy. If it was on the bottom, the color would have appeared as blotches instead of lines. But your layering the red against the green (complimentary colors) really makes this piece sing!

In deciding on how to stack, I tried to alternate light and dark. I think that helped the outcome of the project.
