In each group, a colour way was determined; one neutrals only and the other incorporating blues, pinks and creams. Then, within each group, fabric swatches were exchanged so that there would be some continuity of colour throughout the group’s work. Bonnie and her husband, Scott, did the figuring and construction of the panel patterns…making each of the seven sections different in shape, but of approximately the same area…a big job.
And off home each of us went. There was no theme, no shared vision, just individual ideas of what might work into a shared space. Several months later, here we are showing each other our creations for the first time and being quite amazed that they actually will hang in a cohesive manner!
Our titles for both sets of panels: Earth, Wind, Fire. Be sure to come out and view these quilts at the Orchard Valley Quilters Guild Show May 2 and 3. (See the previous blog entry for more information about the show.)
Here we are at the first reveal -- March 17. Only six more weeks until show time! (Click on images to enlarge; use side arrows to navigate.)
