This is the new quilt that I am working on. It’s very small measuring 21″ x 38″. This quilt has less design elements than most of my other quilts. There is still a lot of work to do on this piece. Besides finishing the applique in the upper right hand corner, I need to add the embroidery.
For the embroidery I purchased a rainbows worth of muted color thread. Right now the quilt feels to matchy and I hope that adding the various colors of the embroidery thread that the quilt will pop.
This is the original design that I put together in Adobe Illustrator. I don’t always use the computer to design my quilts, but sometimes I like the instant satisfaction of not only being able to draw what the quilt will look like but being able choosing and changing colors with ease. I sometimes have trouble picturing colors for my quilts in my head. The computer helps me visualize how the colors may look.
