Project Quilting Season and Patone Challenge
Project Quilting challenge = done!
Here is my "Sweet Treats" inspired quilt for this round of Project Quilting hosted by Kim over at Persimon Dreams HERE
My sweet interpretation comes from a couple of places. First, the Olympics starting this week. Love this! I love all the quilty goodness all over the place at this years Sochi Olympics. Such fun colors too! So watching the pre-Olympic news I caught a lot of their logos and one that kept coming up is the use of 'equilateral' triangles. I have wanted to try them again. Second the location and all the beautiful scenery at the Olympics is just breathtaking. I am loving some of the beginning events too, especially the snow events like slope skiing.
I then thought the triangles in shades of purple looked a lot like 'rock candy'.
So this is my "Purple Rock Candy Mountain" quilt:
Note: It just started snowing like crazy here so that is added bonus to my challenge theme. I have the mountain and someone else "?" provided the snow topping! haha
Measures 27w" x 25h"
match-stick quilting in 8 shades of purple thread
Front has Kona solids with some of my own hand-dyeds mixed in. A lovely ombre fabric I had in my stash was added in.
I think this will make a great entry for the Patone Radiant Orchid challenge mini

*I can't win on trying to take new photos. The last two pics were taken today after two days of 60-70 degree temps. At least it is not a snow storm like in the original post, just frosty. sigh...
