Summer of Color Week 3

When I read the color prompt for this week, I was not exactly jumping for joy. 2 purples and 1 yellow. While I actually like both colors, I would not pick this combination to create something. I admit, that for a moment, I considered skipping this week’s “Summer of Color” challenge. Then I decided to jump right in though and sewed a little art quilt. I am so glad I did. It was a “Priceless Adventure” :).

Like every piece you create Julia, it's beautiful! I also loved the one in your post before with the rusty flower made from the motor part. How awesome is that!!! You are such an artist that I know you look at everything with a new eye.
sending hugs....

Very pretty. I'm not a real fan of purple, though when I wear it in more of an aubergine tone, I do get lots of compliments. You did a good job on your little quilt piece. Best wishes, Tammy

This is so sweet! Although I sew a bit I never think of art and sewing in the same breathe - unless I painted the fabric of course. I just love what you have done with these colors - they were a challenge but you have met the beast and tamed it! - have a good weekend

this turned out beautiful.
i think our feelings about colors is partly what this is about, exploring, experiencing, sensing what is right or not for each of us. some of the colors i also struggle with.

Beautiful quilt!

I love your soft palette - fascinating for me to see this kind of crafting - lovely

Dorthe said...

I love what you did, dear Julie, even I also, not, just love those two colours together, I think that the tones you used looks wonderful together, and the drawing or doodling with your machine looks fantastic, too.
You have really changed your style, in taking part in this "summer of colour" challenge , it is great to be "pushed" a bit sometimes.
I hope your weekend is good ,dear friend, and wish you sunshine and happy hours !!
Love and hugs, Dorthe

Oh Wow Julia this is such a departure from your normal color tones and I am surprised that you have purple in your collection but you always create something so interesting for the challenge and it is great to see what you invent.
Great work.

Liebe Julia,
die Kombination aus den beiden Farben, die eigentlich stark sind und bei dir dennoch zart aussehen, finde ich superschön - total gelungen und wirklich gut, dass du nicht "geskipt" hast!
Danke dir auch sehr für deine immer so lieben Zeilen bei mir! Du wolltest wissen, welche Blume ich euch da in dem Flower-Power-Posting gezeigt habe: Das ist eine Bartnelke kurz vor dem Erblühen. In dieser noch unfertigen Form gefallen sie mir ganz besonders gut. Inzwischen sind sie leider schon wieder am Vergehen...
Meine lange Sendepause hat übrigens nicht nur mit dem neuen Bad, sondern auch mal wieder mit Urlaub zu tun ;o)) - deshalb komme ich erst jetzt wieder zu kleineren Blogrunden. Demnächst (morgen oder übermorgen) wird es aber zumindest erste Badzimmerfotos zu sehen geben :o)
Ganz herzliche Rostrosengrüße (und Fellchenkrauler!) von der Traude

Your quilt is amazing! What a great idea for summer of colour :-)
