This month, our guest post is by Heather Jones. Heather is on the top of my list for most inspirational designers. She recently released her book, Quilt Local: Finding Inspiration in the Everyday, which is amazing, as it looks at the world around you and how you can transform that world into your quilt or piece of work. I also love her play with scale. I am looking forward to her new fabric line that was introduced at quilt market last week “Color Dash” (Robert Kaufman Designer).
Her blog post, this month, talks about how she introduced these colors into her quilts and learned to work with them. I think, those who are apprehensive of using coral and/or peaches will find this very useful.
This challenge is a mini research project, and hopefully expanding your inspiration focus. Find an artist (fine arts – oil, printing, painting, drawing) who uses peaches and corals in their work. What other colors do they use with this color palette? Now try to recreate this color palette using your own prints and/or solids. Next week, I will provide you a link-up in the guest post introduction, to add your fabric pull with description of the artist (and link) to the pieces of work you were inspired by.
The prize this month is a 6 piece peach and coral bundle from Art Gallery Fabrics and a $20 Gift card from the Fat Quarter Shop. The link-up is open until 31st May (11:55pm). Winner will be announced in next month’s first post.
