my first: pixelated9:47:00 PM
The lovely Ali of a2w posed a challenge for the beginning of this year, ending March 8.
The challenge was to create something quilty using the Pantone color of 2013: Emerald.
More on the rules can be found here.
We were allowed to use all shades of green, although emerald should be the primary focus, with one other color and a neutral in allowance (the colors I used are listed at the bottom of this post).
I decided to pay an homage to my very first machine:
I wanted to make a funky wall-hanging/mini-quilt, and I thought, hey, why not 'pixelate' the Brother?
I started out with a load of 1" squares in 13 colors (12 shades of green, including Kona Emerald):
I then got to work setting out my 'pixels' and sewing them all together in sections:
(all green Konas)
It was a fun project to undertake; I just would like to thank Ali for hosting the challenge, and to all of the generous sponsors!
