Even bijpraten

De zomer is bijna voorbij, de eerste quiltbeurs is alweer achter de rug. Tijd om even bij te praten. Het is wat stil geweest op mijn blog omdat ik “weer even” ging verhuizen. Ditmaal vanuit Curaçao naar Nederland. Op de terugreis nog even langs onze zoon in Nieuw-Zeeland geweest en daarna was het weer volop in de verhuisdozen. Ook de stoffen zijn allemaal weer terug op z’n plaats. Beter nog…. ik heb de beschikking over een hele mooie ruimte aan huis waar alles prachtig overzichtelijk in kasten staat. Op afspraak kan je ook langskomen in mijn nieuwe onderkomen. Hierbij wil ik mijn zus Gertrude nogmaals bedanken voor de goede zorg van de verzendingen en het beheren van de stoffen.

Tijdens de tentoonstelling van het Quiltersgilde te Breda  heb ik met een stand in de kerk gestaan. Veel van jullie heb ik daar weer mogen ontmoeten. Hieronder een kleine impressie van de stand. Gelukkig is de tropische hitte tijdens deze beurs niet te zien, en ik kan je verzekeren dat het in de kerk niet altijd koel is. Gelukkig hebben de dames van het Quiltersgilde goed voor ons gezorgd met lekker koele drankjes.

As I mentioned in the Introduction of Gravity, the intention is that you will have fun making your Gravity quilt and have fun with the subtle color variations within the quilt blocks. There is no need to stress about precisely matching fabric or color placement from block to block.The beauty of this design, and the variety of fabrics and colors used to create it, is that each quilt will take on a subtle and distinct look and feel of its own. With that in mind, for those of you who REALLY want to know which colors I used where, I hope you will find these posts to be helpful.Tell us in the comments below: Has working on your Gravity quilt inspired you to work with colors you wouldn’t otherwise consider adding to rainbow quilts? Are your Gravity quilt blocks helping you to strengthen your color usage skills? Tell us all about it in the comments!Remember to share your photos on social media with the #GravityQuilt tag & have fun!
