I really love the way the night sky piece of fabric seems to recede on one of the contest potholders. It seems like you can look right into it, like a window into the night.
So I thought I’d try a quilt based on the potholder. It’s a bit tricky, because scale changes everything, but this is what I came up with. Looking at the photo, I can see that the night sky needs to be surrounded by lighter colors and although the brown works in the design, it doesn’t have the effect I’m looking for. Maybe I’ll switch the night sky fabric with the red and patchwork fabric. When I do this something else will happen that I can’t yet see and I’ll have to change it again. I’ll just have to wait till tomorrow and see what I do.
The Potholder Contest ends 12 noon on Tuesday, so there’s still time to enter. (see Friday’s post) Thanks for the great response so far, I’ll have to do this again!
