This quilt was designed by Brenda Dean and I had a lot of fun making all the little kimonos. The quilt itself took less than a day to piece and a day to quilt and bind. Fun fun fun!
Using Brenda's technique to fold kimonos, I made a bunch out of indigo fabrics also for a guild challenge. The challenge was to take two colors and make a quilt. Our two colors were randomly chosen - I got purple and violet. We were allowed to add one color of our choice (I chose indigo), and a background color (I chose peach). I am actually using the background color in the foreground. I may get disqualified, but easier to get forgiveness than permission so I didn't ask ;) - Here is what I have so far:
Right now, the kimonos are just pinned on - and all the little beaded peach colored yoyo flowers are not on the quilt yet... nor are the sparkly gems and beads. I hope it's pretty when it's done. It is due to be finished by early April. I have about 1/10 of the yoyos beaded so far... still lots to do!
