My selection is a black (that almost reads grey) for the dark and blues for my cool color. I also chose variegated threads to work with. You can read more about it on my blog post.

Week Four Gallery Pieces

What a lot of fun this turned out to be. Everyone did something a little different which is totally awesome!

Barbara added colored borders to her piece and used the extra bits to make two greeting cards. Great idea.

Barbara's challenge and cards

Amanda bound hers off using two different fabrics to make as a pot holder, but she says, she probably won't use it as such just in case it gets dirty.

Jennifer sent in her piece. She veered off the foundation block and came up with her own creation. You can read about it on her blog.

  • Oh dear, not another project and I haven't finished my Day in the Country yet, nor my granddaughter's quilt, nor ... However, I'm off to find some scraps now and look forward to seeing what happens next.
