I have to admit that though I found the theme a really interesting one to think about I really struggled this time to come up with a quilt. Probably I am not the only one who is finding that the pandemic is starting to take a toll on my mental energy?! In the end, I decided to follow on from last quarter's theme and, thinking about the use of the colour wheel in the garden, make a quilt showing how using opposite colours together can bring each colour to life. Unfortunately my camera is not picking up the glowing oranges and purples of the Oakshott cottons I have used here, and the effect they have in proximity to each other, but here is a cheery bunch of flowers!
I made this little piece in great haste and it is not a work of art - but it was very encouraging doing it and feeling a bit of creativity returning! Being forced to be much more spontaneous than usual was fun and quite liberating, and the scribbly raw-edge appliqué in black is something I will come back to. Once again I am very grateful to be a part of this group!
