I made a mini-quilt for a swap on the blog 15 Minutes of Play of hosted by Victoria Findlay-Wolfe. The challenge was to take a painting and interpret it in solid fabrics.
here. I had it all planned out in my mind (several times!) and eventually started putting my ideas to work on the fabric. I kept the picture close by and referred to it often. I was most attracted by the hard boiled eggs! I started with the white and yellow and made several before adding the table around them.
When I finished the piecing, I wasn't thrilled. It did not resemble the image I had in my mind. But I couldn't figure out what to do differently so I sandwiched it and started quilting.
I was pleasantly surprised! I liked it much more after I quilted it! It added a spark and made it look a little less flat. In this swap, the person I sent my quilt also sent one to me.
