This Giveaway is now closed
One of my goals for 2017 is to revive my blog with a weekly post and the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day is a great way for me to get a jumpstart on this goal.
I have so much to share but I want to keep it short so I'm just going to touch on my recent obsession with the Storm at Sea block. I've only made two so far but I have plans for several more experiments with color placement.
My first two examples are an explosion of color but vary in placement of the background fabric. The right example may look haphazard but it actually reads warm on one diagonal and cool on the other. I was shocked when I stepped back to look at the finished block to see that the shape reads quite well.
My second example places black and taupe neutrals in the spaces that had color in the first example. This piece was made for the AugMQG's Secret Santa Swap and was delivered to it's owner at our Christmas party this week. It's made with Kona and Peppered Cottons. I think it's beautiful but it definitely doesn't read as strong as the first version.
I was able to use this great Carrie Bloomston print for the back that I recently received from a Giveaway I won from SewPsyched. Isn't it just a perfect compliment!
