I'll post more pictures when I'm piecing these! Stay tuned for more color play! If you are interested in my Sliding Shoji Screens pattern you can ask at your local quilt shop or find it on my Etsy shop along with other patterns at www.etsy.com/shop/colorandquilt !
What would Sliding Shoji Screens quilt pattern look like in a new line? I wanted to try it out with my Blushing Peonies prints that will be shipping from Moda Fabrics in November. Here is the original color version of the quilt done in the light version:
And here are two versions of the quilt in new colors and prints! For the first one I wanted to try a punch of citrus orange (this is Bella Solid 161 Amelia Orange). I made the smaller divider strips in Persimmon 294 to add some deeper contrast. I have ordered my fabric and can't wait to get started on this one! It feels so summery and happy to me!
This gray version evokes a calmer, more restful quilt with the pretty color pop of peachy peonies. I wanted to try more light and mid-tone grays and keep my contrast relatively low. I like the added in deep charcoal in the floral pinwheels pattern as my dark color. I don't think it overpowers the other patterns because there is still a lot of light gray in the floral motif.
I am very happy to finally have my first downloadable coloring image up on my etsy shop! I made this image up for my recent trip to Quilt Market in Houston. One thing quilters and coloring peeps have in common is the lovely experimentation and play with color! So have fun with trying out different palettes without cutting into your stash!
