Having a Ball with Colour!

I needed a change from what I had been doing and this was certainly it! Totally unlike me - bright colours and not a tree in sight - I really enjoyed this as a project. It was based on a 'Darned Quilt' technique by Dena Crain and used a pack of strips which I curve pieced before embellishing and cutting.


  1. I love this quilt Linda, like you I don't usually 'do' brights but this is gorgeous. Hope to see it 'in the flesh' at show'n'tell!

  2. Impressive! Congratulations! I like the model, I like the colors, I like the result! Congratulations!

  3. Hello Linda,
    This looks amazing finished.
    best wishes,
    Jane C

  4. I am very, very jealous of this piece. You have to be quite daring to use such saturated color, but what a great result. I need more bright fabrics.

  5. This is a gorgeous piece. As I'm addicted to color (can't seem to do anything subtle), I can only approve! I've enjoyed going over your blog and seeing your textile work/play.
    best, nadia

  6. Thank you for visiting my blog and your kind comment. This was my first attempt at making a landscape from felted pieces. Not great art, but lovely textures and colors.
