Modifty Tradition Swap

Tuesday, May 04, 2010 2 Comments »
I think I am way WAY out of my element on this one, but I'll give it a shot.  I'm participating in the Modify Tradition Swap, and I need to give my secret partner some hints about what I like.  We are doing small quilts to swap, using traditional blocks & modern fabrics. 

For my Swap Sister:  have at it!  I like bright colors.  Hot pinks, sunshine yellow, turqouise, lime; or the bright colors of the sea.  I also like the crisp provincial French colors of royal blue, red, yellow and greenike the fabric line Breath of Avignon).  Even patriotic red, white & blue.  I'm not so much into muddled colors -- I like crisp contrast.  Bright stripes, white dots on a strong backgroun. batiks -- my o my, batiks.  Any design is fine with me, although I'm not big on applique.  I'll try to find some pictures to post on Flickr (Lord help me!), but the ones on the Modify Tradition "Communication is Good" post fit my taste.  I see that a number of the example quilts are from Red Pepper, one of the blogs that gives me color inspiration. 

I may be hanging your quilt in my sewing room, or I may be taking it to work to hang in my office/cube to brighten my day. 

Here's the link to my Flickr stuff.
