Hello marsala! If I had to be completely honest, I didn't like you at first. You were a bit of an ugly color, in my opinion. I'm still not sure why you were even named color of the year by Pantone either. BUT. But I started to work with you, and I began to like you. You turned out to be pretty awesome.
I turned to RIT to get my marsala color. I chose to hand dye an ombre effect, which turned out so wonderful! This was my first attempt at hand dyeing. Must do that again and soon. :)
I was up for a challenge, and the color in of itself was a challenge alone. I missed out on the other Pantone Quilt challenges hosted by Play-Crafts and On the Windy Side, so I jumped at the chance for this one. I had been experimenting with paints awhile back, and I knew that this unique to me design would lend itself well for a quilt.
I chose to go smaller, so the investment was not as great. Who knew if I would end up liking the quilt once it was done? It measures 37" x 48".
I tend to keep my quilting simple. Echo quilting seemed like the only logical choice for this top. :)
I hand quilted inside the triangles.
I used my scraps to make the quilt back.
It's OK to not understand what is happening here with my hair.
Marsala, I love you.
