I'm about to embark on a new adventure.
For the past four years I have been a member of the board of directors of the Frisco Quilt Guild. It has been fun, but now I am ready to step along side my friends and help row the boat instead of stear.
If you would like to join myself and the ladies of the Frisco Quilt Guild you are welcome to. This is what you will need:
- For the top
- 5 colors: 1 dark, 1 light, 1 background, 2 contrasting/complementary mediums
- dark - 1 1/2 yards (includes outer border of quilt)
- light - 1/2 yard
- background - 1 yard
- 1st contrasting: 1 1/4 yards (includes inner border of quilt)
- 2nd contrasting: 3/4 yards
- For the back
- 3 yards
When picking out your fabric think of these things...
The following are pictures of the quilts Kelli and I made. Use them to help you sellect your fabrics.
|A VERY GOOD example of the contrast you are looking for.|
Dark and light pinwheels stand out against the tan background and the pink and blue mediums.
Make sure that your light fabric and your background fabric are very different. This will help the secondary pattern emerge.
|BAD!! example of contrast.|
The polka dots in the pinwheels and the background are too close.
The background and the tan beach are too close.
Make sure that your medium fabrics neither blend into the background nor the dark and light.
