It's round FIVE of the Printed Bolt's REPEAT contest. This is the last round of the contest before the final round. If I make it to the final round I have a 1/3 chance of winning the prize money, a trip to the Houston Quilt Market and having a quilt constructed in my winning collection. How amazing would that be? So go vote now and help me make it to the final (Voting closes Sunday night)
I was really excited about the Flea Market theme and had a blast creating "Field of Fortune." (above) When working on my secondary patterns I always try to imagine each pattern as an important component in a collection.
I usually make some patterns at a larger scale, smaller scale, have less color, have a geometric feel or an organic feel.
This round I really loved them all and it was tough choosing which to submit. Ultimately I chose the blue version of the one below.
Anyways, I'm really happy with how all of these turned out. I feel like I managed to push myself out of my comfort zone a little and still create work that feels like it's coming from me. This round we have some seriously exciting judges: Carolyn Friedlander and Kim Kight. I'm really looking forward to hearing what they have to say because I love Carolyn's new quilt patterns and I always read Kim's blog True Up. Fingers crossed!
