White on Colour 2

White on Colour 2

I am considering the colour options to make a real White on quilt, and wondering if I could use a variety of whites, or should I stick with just one.

Plenty of time to think about it as there are some UFOs which I want to get out of the sewing room, and some other new projects to get underway … and finished … before a white on anything gets to the top of the list.

PS Still time to comment on yesterdays 6 virtual quilts and get something in return other than just a few words!

  1. A very striking design! Would you cut out the red from behind the white applique?


    • Laura,

      Very good question!

      Is there a fusible web which would ‘white’ out the background fabric? At least if it was fused there would be no shadow from the seam. For this sort of work we need some light fabrics which are not see through.

    I agree with Laura. Too many fine lines for my taste, but I like the designs. Very striking on a red background! Funny how most quilters seem to have UFO’s stashed away. I think I should finish my flannel shaggy quilt at the Retreat this year.

    Wow this is lovely but a lot of work & not sure if I could do this one but thanks for showing us all.

    • Sandra,

      Thank you … this particular virtual quilt is probably a bit too complex, but they idea of using a very light fabric on a dark contrast is appealing, though i think I would like a softer contrast.
