It's a gorgeous shot cotton, emerald green and red, so depending on how the quilt is rotated and how the light is hitting it --it looks either more green or more red, as you can see in the photos above.
This was my entry to my guild's challenge this year--for the past two years we've made which ever project we like (starting with about 1m of fabric, adding fabrics as you wish). I wasn't sure what to make, and then saw Jamie Wallen's video on his Flying Geese Rulers.
Several of us went on a shop hop to Olds, a small town about an hour from Calgary that has 3 quilt shops! ( I think Calgary has 4). We had so much fun, and I had my eye out for a gorgeous piece of fabric, and when I found a shelf of shot cottons at one of the stores, then it was hard to pick--also hard because I didn't know who would be winning this project at the guild exchange, and some colors I knew I loved but maybe others wouldn't.
And by then, I had received my Quilters Apothecary rulers, and I set out to have some fun!
Two layers of batting really lets the quilting show.
Kerri got to take this quilt home with her, and I got this fabulous Elephant and I pillow by Vicki. I love it!
I have a plan for this years exchange now. We're doing a Choose Your Own Adventure type project, with the goal of trying something new or a stretch (new technique, different color palette etc).
